Work Visa Application Process
The process of obtaining a work visa in the U.S. generally involves the following steps:
Job Offer: A U.S. employer must offer you a job, and they become the sponsor for your work visa application.
Labor Condition Application (LCA): For H-1B visas, the employer must file an LCA with the Department of Labor, ensuring that the working conditions and wages offered to the foreign worker meet certain standards.
Filing the Petition: The employer files a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on your behalf, including necessary supporting documents.
Consular Processing or Change of Status: Depending on your current status in the U.S., you may need to apply for a work visa at a U.S. consulate abroad (consular processing) or apply for a change of status if you are already in the U.S.
Interview (if required): Some work visa categories may require you to attend an interview at a U.S. embassy or consulate.
Approval and Entry: If your work visa is approved, you can enter the U.S. and begin working for the sponsoring employer.
