More temporary work permits may soon be available for farmworkers

A bill that is currently working its way through the approval process in California may help numerous immigrants across the state who are working on farms. Known as Assembly Bill 20, if passed, this measure will grant temporary work permits and deportation relief to undocumented farm workers. It is believed that this will help approximately 500,000 people.

What is an O-visa and who may be eligible to receive one?

With so many types of visas available to those wishing to enter the United States, it can be extremely confusing to know which one is really needed. For those seeking entry for work, whether in California or elsewhere, the O-visa is one that can be granted for employment purposes. There are, of course, strict eligibility requirements that must be met before this type of visa will be granted.

What is labor certification and how to get it?

Employers, in California or in other locations across the country, who wish to employ foreign workers are required to obtain all necessary legal documents in order to do so. Labor certification will need to be issued for this purpose and must be obtained through the Department of Labor (DOL). This is not something that is handed out to everyone, and certain requirements must be met before this certification is granted.

Are changes coming to the number of H-1B visas allowed?

Problems with immigration are still considered a hot topic among U.S. lawmakers. While one of the biggest concerns frequently reported has to deal with the number of undocumented immigrants currently living in and coming to the country every year, visa issues are something many would also like to see addressed. When it comes to H-1B visas, which are needed for certain types of employment, approval can be difficult to get. The lack of availability not only hurts immigrants but also employers in California and throughout the country.

Who needs E-3 visas in order to work in the United States?

There are a number of work visas available to immigrants who wish to gain employment in the United States. Those with certain professional licenses, in particular, need to obtain one of these visas in order to keep working in their current field when they enter the country. For those coming from Australia, E-3 visas are required for certain professionals before they are allowed to start work here in California or elsewhere nationwide.

Employment immigration and professional licensing applications

The governor of California, Governor Jerry Brown, has signed several key pieces of legislation this year that will improve the lives of undocumented immigrants living in the state. The latest refers to employment immigration issues, specifically regarding professional licensing applications. This is going to be a game changer as far as the types of jobs undocumented immigrants will be able to obtain after completing their education.

H-1B visas applications require attention to detail

Professionals who desire to make a move to the United States, either for a new life or simply a learning opportunity, are required to have proper legal documentation in order to continue working in their particular field. H-1B visas are generally required for certain specialized positions, but getting one of these visas isn't easy. The number granted across the country each year is limited. Immigrants to California who would like to work in their trained profession must act quickly and without error if they are to be granted this kind of visa.

How do I know what type of employment visa I need?

Individuals from all across the globe often have a desire to obtain gainful employment in the United States. In fact, every year thousands of immigrants are granted the necessary documentation required to work not only in California, but nationwide. Whether their desire is simply to have a temporary growth opportunity or includes hopes of someday making this new work arrangement permanent, an employment visa is necessary to get the process started.

Short supply of H-1B visas blamed for poor tech industry growth

People flock to American from all around the world for jobs or to live out their own “American dream.” Unfortunately, getting the proper documentation to acquire that job or to stay in the country permanently can prove to be rather difficult. According to recent data, a shortage of H-1B visas offered to immigrants can be blamed for poor growth in the country’s tech industries. Some cities in California have seen the effects of this.

Desire to grant Green cards to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges

While the pathway to being granted legal status to stay in the country isn't always easy, there are those fighting to provide more options for individuals who wish to call the United States home. Recently, the Department of Labor asked government officials to grant green cards to foreign graduates of U.S. colleges, in order for them to use the education they gain here to support the local economy. This could be a huge benefit to California students about to graduate, who may otherwise be forced to head back to their native country when their college days are done.
