Do you need to request employment Visas to work in the U.S.? To temporarily work in the United States as a lawful nonimmigrant, temporary workers must qualify for the available visa category based on the planned employment. The steps in the process before applying for a visa vary.
VISA FOR WORK
Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for temporary stay or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Temporary worker visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each permit requires the prospective employer to file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An approved petition is required to apply for a work visa.
TYPES OF VISA (see details above)
HOW TO APPLY
After USCIS approves the Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker (Form I-129), you may apply for a visa. There are several steps in the visa application process. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you apply. Please consult the embassy or consulate website instructions where you will use it.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE IN THE US
A visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a U.S. port-of-entry (generally an airport) and request permission to enter the United States. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at the port-of-entry have the authority to permit or deny admission to the United States. If you are allowed to enter the United States, the CBP official will provide an admission stamp or paper Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record. A visa does not guarantee entry into the United States.
