Clarity and Strength in Immigration Law

Need to send an employee to the US to work? Plan Ahead and Avoid Delays and Surprises!

If you need to send (or bring) an employee to the US to work, you can take a few easy steps to make the process faster and smoother for you, your company, and for the employee. For example, these are the basic questions to consider; this information will help the immigration attorney expedite the preparation and filing process:

  1. When does the employee need to be in the US? Is this a hard and fast date, or is there any flexibility?
  2. What is the employee coming to the US to do? Will he/she just attend meetings, or will she/he be working? If he/she will be working in the US, what kind of work will he/she do? Will they be placed at a client site?
  3. How long do you think the employee will need to stay in the US?
  4. Who will pay the employee while he/she is in the US?
  5. Do you anticipate the employee will want to file for permanent residence in the future (through the employer or otherwise)?
