Assistance With Employment-Based Visas

Employment-based immigration petitions are too complicated to complete without the help of an experienced lawyer. In addition to dealing with the U.S. immigration authorities, your company must gain approval from the Department of Labor. It is a multistep process that calls for keen legal insight and experienced representation.

At The Law Offices of Santiago & Associates, PC, we are here to provide the skilled assistance your business requires to hire employees from all over the world. In practice for the past 15 years, our New Jersey attorney is available to handle a wide array of employment-based petitions for:

  • H-1B visas for temporary workers in specialty occupations
  • H-2B visas for temporary workers hired on a seasonal or intermittent basis
  • Schedule A visas for foreign health care workers
  • EB-1 and EB-2 visas for persons of extraordinary ability
  • EB-3 visas for skilled workers
  • EB-4 visas for special immigrants such as priests, Iraqi interpreters and others
  • EB-5 visas for investors

Investor Visas: A Popular Choice For Wealthier Immigrants

In the wake of the recent downturn in the American economy, the EB-5 visa program has been steadily gaining popularity — both within the U.S. and outside of it. Sometimes referred to as an "immigrant investor visa" or "commercial center visa," the EB-5 allows foreign nationals to obtain permanent residency status in exchange for creating a certain number of jobs here.

In order to qualify, the investor must:

  • Create a new business enterprise in the U.S. or purchase and significantly expand an existing one
  • Invest $1 million or more, or invest $500,000 or more in a specifically targeted area of employment
