Current work-based visa program may limit economic growth

Individuals who are planning to immigrate to Florida on an employment-based visa may be interested to learn that the U.S. has received approximately 233,000 H-1B applications for the 2016 fiscal year. These applicants will compete for the Congress-mandated maximum of 85,000 work visas offered annually.

Employment-based immigration visas for foreign journalists

Social and political issues in Florida and around the country are followed closely by people all over the world, and foreign media companies must send journalists and their support staff to America if they wish to cover these stories effectively. Conventional employment-based visas may not be appropriate for the work performed by media representatives, so immigration authorities provide the I visa to allow journalists and television crews to complete their assignments.

Immigrant workers who take priority for employment visas

About 140,000 applicants are qualified for employment-based immigrant visas every year. Of these visas, 28.6 percent go to priority workers. Immigrant workers who wish to apply for an employment visa in Florida as first preference applicants must fall into one of three sub-categories.

Broadcasters and Florida immigration

Federal immigration law provides for special visas to be granted to certain classes of professionals who wish to work in the United States. Known as EB-4 visas, this type of access to the country are generally held for religious and medical workers, broadcasters and members of the Armed Forces. However, other classifications may be eligible for this type of visa as well.

Religious workers and special immigrant visas

Some foreign religious workers intending on accepting jobs in Florida churches and associated charitable organizations have a special immigration visa available to them. In order to qualify, the religious worker as well as the religious organization must meet certain criteria established under the law.
