Temporary Worker Visas

Do you need a visa for working in the United States?

Citizens of 37 countries across the globe are able to enter and travel to the United States for up to 90 days for the purposes of visiting loved ones, taking a vacation, or performing certain limited business functions thanks to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Most of the United States' major trading partners participate in the VWP, meaning that a large percentage of people who would like to come to the U.S. for a short-term visit can do so with relatively little involvement in the immigration legal system. VWP participants are not, however, permitted to enter the United States for the purposes of pursuing employment.

If you are planning to come to this country to start at a new job, as part of a transfer from one of your employer's offices to another office or facility, or for the purposes of engaging in certain types of trade or investment, you must apply for one of the many different types of nonimmigrant visas.
