Attorneys for Employment Visas, Family-Based Visas, U and T Visas, and Visitor Visas in Oak Brook, Westmont, and Surrounding Areas

There are two types of immigrant visas: nonimmigrant visas and immigrant visas. A nonimmigrant visa is for foreign nationals who wish to stay in the U.S. temporarily. An immigrant visa allows citizens from another country to live on a permanent basis in the U.S. There are numerous types of immigrant and nonimmigrant visas, and it is essential to understand which type of visa you or your loved one requires and is eligible for.

At Khan Nayyar & Associates, our immigration lawyers understand the complexities surrounding the visa application process. Therefore, we are with our clients throughout every step of the process in order to ease their fears and address their questions and concerns. We practice law with open communication, skill, and compassion, and we understand the hopes and concerns our clients have.

Family-Based Immigrant Visas

There are several forms of family-based immigrant visas that are grouped into two separate categories: immediate relative immigrant visas (unlimited) and family preference immigrant visas (limited). Immediate relative immigrant visas are for close family relatives of U.S. citizens and there is an unlimited amount of immediate relative immigrant visas that can be issued in a single fiscal year. Family preference immigrant visas are limited and are for distant foreign relatives of U.S. citizens.

Worker Visas

Foreign workers or business persons who wish to enter the U.S. for temporary work or employment can apply for a worker visa. There are several types of worker visas such as:

  • The H-1B visa is for individuals who work in specialty occupations that require a higher academic degree. Distinguished fashion models, government-to-government researchers, and individuals working on projects that are administered by the Department of Defense are all qualified for the H-1B visa.
  • Temporary agricultural worker visas (H-2A).
  • Temporary non-agricultural worker visas (H-2B).
  • Trainee or special education visitor (H-3 visa). Foreign nationals who wish to receive training (other than medical or academic training) that is not available in the national's home country can apply for an H-3 visa.

U and T Visas for Victims of Criminal Activity

Non-citizens who are victims of qualifying criminal activities are eligible for special nonimmigrant status. If a foreign national suffers extreme abuse as a result of a crime, he or she may apply for a U visa that will permit him or her to stay in the U.S.. The immigrant may stay in the U.S. as long as he or she helps law enforcement in the investigation of the crime the foreign national was a victim of.

A T visa also allows victims of human trafficking to remain in the U.S. if they cooperate with law enforcement in investigating or prosecuting human trafficking cases.

Visitor Visas

A visitor visa allows foreign nationals to visit the U.S. for tourism and some business purposes. A business (B-1) visa allows foreign nationals to attend professional or educational conventions, settle estates, negotiate contracts, and consult with business colleagues in the United States. A B-1 visa does not permit the holder to work in the U.S.

A B-2 visa permits foreign nationals to enter the U.S. for tourism, medical treatment, vacation, and visits with friends and family.
