Nonimmigrant Visas

A San Jose Immigration Lawyer Helping You

Coming to the U.S. on a temporary basis requires what’s called a nonimmigrant visa. Whether it’s for tourism, medical purposes, education, or employment, a nonimmigrant visa is granted for a limited period of time. Attorney Jay Terkiana, our San Jose immigration lawyer, is foreign-born and came here on an F-1 student visa for his education. After graduating from Saint Louis University in 2007, he got an H-1B (specialty occupations) visa and eventually became a permanent resident.

Nonimmigrant visas are not meant to be a pathway to permanent residency; but they can sometimes lead to that, as Jay’s own personal experience shows. Jay knows the system inside and out and does his utmost to apply that experience to help our clients obtain their nonimmigrant visas.

There are many categories of nonimmigrant visas. Some are relatively easy for people to obtain. An example would be visas for tourists. Terkiana, Inc. Immigration Attorneys is dedicated to helping clients fulfill their nonimmigrant visa needs, which could be difficult without experienced guidance.

Our experience is particularly useful for people seeking nonimmigrant visas who are:

  • Professionals in specialty occupations, such as accountants, architects, engineers, doctors, and teachers. These could qualify under the H-1B visa.
  • Managers, executives, and specialists like architects, engineers, doctors and even teachers who work for a business abroad and are needed for that business in the U.S. These could qualify under the L-1A and L-1B visas.
  • People with extraordinary skills or talents, such as those with significant awards or accomplishments in business, academics, athletics, or the arts. These could qualify under the O-1A or O-1B visas.
  • Athletes coming to compete in the U.S., as well as artists and entertainers coming to perform. These could qualify under the P visas.
  • Mexicans and Canadians with college degrees and working in professions such as accountants, doctors, engineers, and scientists. These could qualify under NAFTA agreements for TN-1 visas.
  • Australians in occupations requiring a college education and specialized knowledge. These could qualify for E-3 visas.
  • Workers in religious occupations, and ministers. These could qualify under the R-1 visas.
