Employment immigration for businesses

Business owners in Florida may have foreign national workers as employees on a long-term or short-term basis. In order to obtain permanent residence or non-immigrant work visas, workers have to be qualified based on strict and complex criteria.

Sometimes, that could mean hiring new talent and requesting a visa for that professional's entry into the United States. Other times, that could mean transferring top talent from your divisions in other countries to your United States locations.
