What Is an H-1B Visa Status?

An H-1B visa allows a foreign national to work temporarily in the United States. Once an immigrant attains an H-1B visa, they may hold the H-1B visa status for up to six years. This is then renewable every three years if approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An employer files a petition for the H-1B visa on the worker's behalf with the U.S. Department of Immigration.

Why Is an H-1B Visa Status Important?

An H-1B visa status is important to keep you in the country to work. Each year, only 85,000 are available. Of these 85,000, 20,000 H-1B visas are available only to workers that hold a master's degree or high

What Is a NEXUS Card?

A NEXUS card is a border crossing card permitting expedited travel across the U.S.-Canadian border to low-risk U.S. and Canadian citizens.

What is a Permanent Resident Card? 

A permanent resident card, also called a green card, allows the holder to work and live in the United States indefinitely. It does have an expiration date, which is 10 years from the date it was issued. But unless the U.S. government revokes the holder's status or the holder abandons the green card, it is valid.

What Is Immigration Law?

Immigration law defines a person's citizenship and residency status, which binds them with rights and obligations. It also manages how a non-resident of the U.S. may gain residency, citizenship, or visitation rights. Deportation is also a part of immigration law.

United States immigration is governed by four ideals:

  • To unify families that have been dispersed.
  • To bring foreign nationals who have skills to contribute to the U.S. economy.
  • To protect refugees and people at risk.
  • To increase diversity.

How Is the Immigration Process Carried Out?

According to the U.S. Constitution, Congress is given the power to manage and oversee immigration concerns. Specific laws that Congress relies on are located, with some exceptions, in Title 8 of the U.S. Code. Therefore, stipulatio
