Temporary contract work visa

Hi there, I am trying to source what visa's I need to be able to work /sub-contract for different companies across US in the trade I am in. I have plenty of job offers, but I do not want to be tied to 1 company. I want to be able to travel around and work with different companies on a temp basis. I note that I-765 EAD states you can work with this card for different employers without them sponsoring you.. Would this be the only form I need?, or are there other visa types to go with it?.. so confusing.. :-(

I dont think anyone can just apply for i765, to my understanding i765 is only applicable to cases like refugee or in case of spouse of an investor or in case of family member of diplomat etc.

As far as I am aware you cannot just jump around from employeer to employeer..... you got to be on H1 and you will have to transfer your H1 every single time you move.

If you can tell what kinda work you are into that can help to find you right kinda visa.

Thanks.. This is why so confusing..as I read this was the right form for getting employment without a sponsor, but as you say..looks more like just for refugees etc..

I'm a professional vinyl applicator - I wrap vehicles, do signwriting and window tinting..The job offers are there.. I want to travel around and not be tied to 1 employer.. Or, could I be sponsored by 1 employer, work on their behalf..then they could sub-contract me out to different states? Get each company to pay the sponsor then the sponsor pays me.. Would that work? if so which forms?

Or, any other ideas?

Thanks again

The Good News

You do not apply, your employer does. More precisely their Lawyer.

The Bad News

Nothing you have mentioned so far suggests that their is a category to apply in. Need more details.

Yep I agree with Boiler the work you described might have tons of open position, unfortunately it does not fall under the specialized skill for which US has desperate need of ppl.

As Boiler said the employeer has to apply for H1 and cost of H1 runs approx $5000+ do you think any employeer in your field would be willing to spend that much money for getting you from your home country to work here?

Sub-contracting does not work your H1 specifically says whom you working for.
