Ok, so I have a company that is willing to employ me, and willing to sponsor me too.

Which Visa should I go for? When is the earliest I can get it apporoved. I'm actually in the USA now on a Visitor Visa. Is it possible I could stay?

I would appreciate any help?

Thanks! :no:

The company has to apply for it not you.

You can not and do not apply for the work visa. The US employer must apply for the visa on your behalf. The US employer must obtain a certification from the Labor Department that it tried to hire a US resident for the position, could not find a qualified US resident, and would like to hire a foreign worker before it can apply for the visa.

I don't think anyone can advise you what visa you can "go for" without some basic information. The work visa you may qualify for will depend on your occupation, professional credentials, the nature of the position, and the company.

There is no way to know when you can get approve since we don't know which work visa you may qualify for and how long the certification process will take.

There is no way to know if you can stay until the company can file for you.

Thank you for your replies. I'm wondering, if the company is going to apply for me, can I get them to send me at least some of the paperwork involved. As I understand that there is a lot to do, and I don't mind doing it for them.

This obviously would take place after the company has applied for my visa.

Thanks in advance.

Has this company done this before? It is quite an involved process and usually involves a lawyer.

Yes, you will likely be given some forms to fill out.

This is not a do-it-yourself project. Usually, a company will engage a lawyer for around $5,000 to do the paperwork. The company will have to place advertisements for the position and interview candidates who qualify for the job before the Labor Dept. can issue the certification that no US worker is available for the position.

You do not do any of this documentation or application, your employer's lawyer takes care of this and he would apply for your visa.

If your employer is not going to do this then there is no point if he is sponsoring you or not. Sponsoring does mean he is going to file for your visa.

As mentioned earlier post by JOJO they have to go thru like posting the ads for the position they want to hire you and show that they could not find a local candidate who could do the job etc.

Now days applying for a work visa is additional $10k cost.

Sounds like a H1.

As others have said you do very little, just turn up for the interview with a few forms.
