Temporary Employment Visas

Non-Immigrant Visa


Andrade Legal assists many employers and their foreign national employees in applying for temporary employment visas.  

In most cases, an employer must file a petition on the worker’s behalf before the worker can obtain a work-related visa.  

Many of these visa types also have related classifications for workers’ dependent family members.
