There are many different visas that allow foreign nationals to work inside the United States. Those who are outside of the United States may need to obtain the work-based visa at a consulate abroad, and those who are inside the United States may be able to change their status to an employment-based category. The United States provides a yearly minimum of 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas, divided into five preference categories. These visas may require a labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and the filing of a petition with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Non-immigrant visas include H-1B (specialty visas), L-1 (intracompany transferee) and J-1 (exchange visitors).
