Hiring A Foreign National Employee

Employers may not know what type of visa is required for a particular candidate or whether a candidate possesses the appropriate documentation for employment. Typically, the recruiter finds out either before, during or after the hiring process is completed that a foreign national needs immigration assistance. Our law firm can help sort through these issues.

When hiring a foreign national, employers may want to discuss the following questions with our experienced immigration counsel:

  • Is the position short or long term?
  • What are the educational and experiential requirements for the position?
  • How long will it take to obtain the visa and employment permission?
  • Who is responsible for the legal fees and costs associated with the visa?
  • Does the visa of choice allow the employee to live in the U.S. permanently?
  • Does the visa of choice permit unrestricted travel permission?
  • Does the visa of choice allow a spouse to work?
  • Is spousal work authorization a priority for the candidate?
