Upcoming Opportunity for Israelis to Get US Work Visas
If you are looking for a chance for Israelis to get US work visas, then this article will address some upcoming changes regarding Israelis and the E-2 visa program.
Opportunity for Israelis to Get US Work Visas
This section addresses Israelis and the E-2 visa program. The E-2 visa is an investor visa through which Israeli entrepreneurs could invest and work in the United States. This program took a lot of time to put into place, primarily because the US usually only has this option when another country offers Americans the same provisions. However, it seems that Israel will soon become eligible for the E-2 visa program, which will help numerous Israeli investors, businesses and startups.
For more information on the E-2 program, see our US immigration lawyer’s article that provides a longer explanation on the visa in general. We also provide a long list of necessary documents and requirements in order to apply for an E-2 visa.
Other Types of Work Visas to the US
There are a number of other work visa options to the US. There’s the H-1B visa, where a US employer seeks the services of a foreigner with a bachelor’s degree or higher. There’s the J visa, which is a type of exchange program. There’s the L visa, for a business that has US offices. There’s an O-1 visa for people with extraordinary abilities (sports, arts, sciences, etc.). There’s also a P visa for sport teams or entertainment groups. There’s a Q visa, which is similar to the J visa, which is for practical training. Finally, there’s the R visa for religious workers who wish to come to the US.
