A whole variety of nonimmigrant visas are available to [foreign nationals seekin to] enter the U.S. whether on the basis of having a U.S.-based family member, by proving an extraordinary ability in your profession, entering a specialty occupation, working in certain religious organizations, or even by virtue of having been the victim of a certain crime in your home country. Establishing the reason for coming to the U.S. can be the easy party, but sometimes the paperwork required can be challenging, especially because the failure to provide all the required information may delay or backlog your application. An attorney can certainly help you prepare your application and walk you through the process. For general information about the types of nonimmigrant visas that are available, visit the U.S. Citizenship and Immigrations Services website at www.uscis.gov and check out the immigration classifications and visa categories.
