There are many different opportunities for people from other countries in California. Because of this, many people move here to take advantage of those opportunities. There are many schools and universities for people to attend. There are also many different jobs and companies within California that have an international presence. Therefore, people working for the companies in other countries may need to come to California for various projects. People also come to live or stay with family for a period of time.
People who come here intending to stay for an extended period of time need to obtain visas in order to stay legally. There are many different types of visas depending on the reason people have come to the U.S.
Visas for students, employees and others
There are student visas for people coming here to go to school as well as visas for children of those students. There are also work visas for those who come here to work for a period of time. However, there are many different types of work visas depending on the type of work people will be doing. There are visas for highly specialized workers and those who do seasonal work such as farming. There are also different visas for executives and managers coming to the U.S. Those coming for religious work will also need a different visa. People working on ships would need special visas as well.
There are also different types of visas for people coming for other reasons as well. Since there are so many different types of visas, the process of choosing the correct visa and then obtaining that visa can be complicated.
It’s important to get it right
Many people come to California from other countries on temporary basis. In order to live, work or go to school here legally, people will need the correct visa. If people do not obtain the proper one or incorrectly apply for a visa, it could prevent them from doing the work they need to do or from getting the education they want. Experienced attorneys understand the complicated visa process, however, and can guide one through it.
