Nonimmigrant (temporary) Visas are available in a variety of categories. We secure them for professionals, foreign trainees of U.S. companies and intracompany transferees of international firms, foreign medical graduates, researchers, students and scholars. Other categories exist for chefs and domestic workers and for business owners and managers on extended stays in the U.S. The firm also arranges waivers of the 2-year foreign residency requirement for foreign medical graduates, enabling them to remain in the U.S.
