Obtain Visas When Employing Foreign Citizens

Key Points

  • When hiring citizens of foreign countries, employers must ensure that those individuals have the proper visas authorizing them to work in the US.
  • There are several different types of visas depending on the individual's occupation, whether the individual is a student and whether the individual intends on coming to the US temporarily or permanently.
  • The requirements set forth by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services must be followed when sponsoring a foreign citizen for an employment-based visa. These requirements may differ depending on the type of visa.
