Frequently Asked Questions

What is a work visa?

A work visa is a temporary (nonimmigrant) visa that allows foreign nationals the ability to enter the U.S. for employment purposes. These visas only last for a specified period of time and require the employer to file the first petition.

How long does it take to get a work visa?

The timeframe to get an employment visa depends largely on the availability of nonimmigrant interview appointments and often varies from week to week. You can check the current wait time for an interview on the Department of State website.
