Which Work Visa?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My brother in law wants to move here to the US. He currently lives in Finland, and has a job offer in America. The job isn't a specialty job, its working at a company installing roofs. He has the potential to move up in the company and have a job for a long time. He has worked in the construction field in Finland for a few years already.

Which visa is the most appropriate and fastest to acquire?

Thanks in advance!

Is there any visa where he can just move to america and go work? Or does the work place HAVE to sponsor him? He can get a letter of employment, but I don't know if they know how to sponsor people from Finland.

My wife (his sister) is living here on a green card, so she can't sponsor him unless she gets American Citizenship. We are just wondering what the easiest way is to get a work visa for him.

Nope, that doesn't exist in the US. Work is only through sponsorship.

Same way his Sister did, could you introduce him to someone?

He could also look at the DV lottery.

Work visas are expensive for the company to do and they require that no US person be available for the same job. Your bother in law could try the DV lottery , a sibling petition would take over 13 years so it isn't very probable

Not true unless they're being sponsored for a GC.
