Do you dream of living in America? There are plenty of reasons to make the move: a high standard of living, increased status, and a better pay scale.
It’s definitely a dream worth pursuing, but unless you plan to study in the USA, you’ll need to find a job to secure your visa. That won’t be easy, but we’ve collected some helpful tips to get you on the right path.
How to Choose the Right Visa
To increase your chances of securing a visa, you need to select the best one for your particular situation. Below are the most commonly used visas for work in the U.S.
The H-1B visa is for skilled workers with an advanced educational degree and a history of management-level positions in their home country. However, it also covers some entertainment professionals, such as models.
Choosing an H-1B visa is ideal if you hope to live and work in the United States indefinitely.
If you desire to live in the States for only a short time, or else to get to America and explore your options for staying longer, look to the H-2B visa. It is for temporary or unskilled workers in non-agricultural positions.
Though the H-2B excludes agricultural workers, it can still be seasonal as the majority of employees in this category work in hospitality and tourism.
For temporary agricultural work, apply for an H-2A visa. The U.S. has a great need of people to help with planting, tending, and harvesting crops.
One perk of life on an H-2A visa is that your American employer is required to provide you with housing and meals, as well as transportation to and from the worksite.
Another visa for skilled workers, and perhaps the easiest to attain if you meet certain qualifications, is the L1 or intracompany transfer visa. This program allows foreign workers at companies with an American branch to simply transfer to the States and stay with their current employer.
However, your role at the company must be at the level of executive or management to be eligible for an L1.
Tips to Bolster Your Professional Qualifications
Even if you have an advanced educational degree, you may find that it doesn’t correspond directly with an American degree. So before you apply for your visa, determine whether additional education or a qualifying exam is necessary.
In any case, if you have been out of school for some time, it is wise to enroll in some continuing education courses to bolster your qualifications. The U.S. is looking for the best and brightest when it comes to the many thousands of applications it receives each year.
