AWV connects her with a Korean student currently studying accounting at Wichita State University, located just 45 minutes away, and Ms. Smith thinks the student is a good fit. AWV begins the student’s permanent residency process while she is still in school, and by the time she has graduated and completed a year of practical training at the accounting firm, the student can continue to live and work full time in the USA at the firm with her green card.

I already have an employee in mind; can AWV assist with the process?
Yes. If you already have an intended foreign worker for a position at your company, AmericaWorkVisa can immediately initiate the employment based visa process for his or her immigration to the USA. We will arrange a licensed immigration attorney for you and your intended employee to complete the necessary paperwork and other requirements, and to represent the worker in immigration proceedings.If you have workers currently at your business who need visa adjustment, we can also assist you and your workers as long as they currently are in legal status.

What kinds of workers can you place?
AmericaWorkVisa pre-screens hundreds of qualified international workers of all skill levels and for all types of positions, including, but not limited to: business, technology, hospitality, culinary, landscaping, construction, food service, poultry and meat processing, janitorial cleaning, and general labor. We specialize in helping U.S. companies secure workers for hard to fill positions for which domestic workers are unavailable. Some workers are bachelor’s and master’s degree students currently in the USA on a student visa, and can begin working with you on an internship while they are still in school. We can also arrange for these students to work at your business after graduation. Interns and trainees from overseas are also available. Our international qualified workers come from Asia, Europe, and South & Central America, and have the appropriate levels of education and training that your open positions require. We have workers with specialized university degrees, as well as support staff and general unskilled labor.

How much does it cost?
AmericaWorkVisa charges our U.S. sponsor employers nothing to participate in our placement and other visa programs. The international workers pay for their own placement and legal fees for U.S. immigration with a licensed immigration attorney. Your company will only incur nominal job advertising costs for your open positions- a requirement of the U.S. Department of Labor – which generally costs about $500. Your company will simply pay the worker your standard wage for the specific position hired.

How long does it take? 
Processing timelines for permanent residency will depend on various factors such as the worker’s country of origin and their skill classification. To fill your staff needs quickly, we have international students currently studying in the USA that can intern with your company while still in school, or during their practical training time after graduation. While doing so, the students will apply for permanent residency in order to continue working at your company.  Permanent residency processing generally takes about 1.5 – 3 years. AmericaWorkVisa will work to meet your company’s specific needs and preferences, and your timeline.

How much do I have to pay the worker?
The wage you will pay the employee will be in accordance with your company’s standard compensation for the position and for the skills level of the employee. You will pay the worker a wage comparable to what would be paid to a domestic worker. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) will also ensure that the proposed wage is in accordance with what is known as the “prevailing wage”, which takes into account the position, skill level, and your company’s location in the U.S.

How long will the employee work for my company?
Unless otherwise stated in a legally enforceable employment agreement between your company and the employee, the employment of the worker once he or she begins working will be “at-will”. This means that there is no mandatory required length of employment, and either your company or the employee may terminate the employment relationship at any time.

However, AmericaWorkVisa strongly advises that foreign workers commit to at least 1 year of full time employment at the U.S. company once a Green Card is obtained, in order to ensure the integrity of his or her immigrant status. If a particular foreign worker terminates their employment soon after obtaining permanent residency, questions may be raised from the U.S. government about whether that worker had a bona fide intention to work with their contracted U.S. employer.

What are my responsibilities in the process?
Once you begin sponsorship for your worker(s), your company should sustain its offer(s) of employment until the foreign worker obtains his or her permanent residency in the U.S. Your company should employ the worker once in the U.S. in accordance with the position, job duties, and wage as outlined in your employment agreement filed to the U.S. government. Once the worker begins working at your company, your company has the right to terminate employment.

Do I need an immigration lawyer for this?
You do not need to secure an immigration lawyer for this process. AmericaWorkVisa will arrange a licensed immigration attorney for your company in support of the worker’s immigration proceedings, at no cost to your company.

Can I let the worker go in the middle of the process? What is the result of that?
If your company withdraws the offer of employment once you have initiated the permanent residence process for a worker, then this would terminate that individual’s application with the U.S. government. Therefore your company should not withdraw the offer in the middle of the process.

However, once the worker has obtained his or her permanent residency in the U.S., and begins working at the company, you have the right to terminate his or her employment at any time.

Can your workers speak and write in English?
AmericaWorkVisa will ensure that we present workers to you that meet your needs of English communication. All workers are required to have basic communication skills in English, and competencies will increase depending on your industry and the intended job duties. AWV will facilitate a telephone or video interview between your company and all recruited employees to determine not only their English language abilities, but also their skills related to your open positions. Should you wish to hire an employee, but would like them to improve their English skills, AmericaWorkVisa will arrange for the worker to participate in a pre-job training program for additional study and practice with the English language.
