How Can I get United States work visa from Pakistan

We receive many questions regarding how to get a work visa while you are actually living in Pakistan. Getting a work visa while you are living abroad is very difficult due to ongoing recession. Residents and Citizens of USA are losing their jobs due to Economic crisis. The first priority of the government is to employee those people.
On the other hand for private companies; they easily find people according to their requirement as thousands of people from all over the world come for studying and most of them settle in USA. The only way with which you might be able to get a work visa is that if you are employed by a company in Pakistan who sends their employees to USA to meet clients or work on their behalf in their USA office, they are issued with L visa and does not get paid as high as people in USA are.

The other type of people who might be able to get a work visa it through their relatives, if you have any relative who is a citizen and a businessman then he can help you for issuance of work visa for himself however it also involves lots of steps and legal requirements.

I do not want to disappoint you however it’s better if you know the clear picture. Internationals who has completed their studies in USA are also finding it difficult to get a job and I do not personally know any individual who is hired by a company outside USA.

If you want to settle in USA, work hard and get yourself admitted in any of the University for further studies.



Question:

I want to know more about if one wants to work in U.S.A. how is it possible to get visa here in Pakistan and I also want to know about visit visa also, how much will be the total expense in Pak rupees to cover the cost of travel and other relevant requirements too.
Answer:
Asalam-o-Alaikum,
  • Getting a work visa in Pakistan means that there is a company in United States that is ready to sponsor you a work visa so you can come and work in Unites States. Such work visa is mostly H1 visa. Normally if your company send you to United States to work then you normally get a L1 visa which is as good as H1 visa.
  • To get a work visa you need a company that can sponsor you for which you need a job. If you know someone who is running a business and can sponsor you a work visa so you can work in United States then its easy however if you do not know anyone then it all depends upon your qualifications and skills.
  • Mostly people who get H1 visa while they are in Pakistan are either Engineers or Doctors. Software engineers are in demand too however competition is tough so you have to be good at what you do. You can also have some other technical skills including specialty cook etc.
  • If you don’t have any technical knowledge or education then chances are weak. United States is dealing with high unemployment rates now a days and their preference is to get them jobs first before sponsoring any international work visa’s for categories like marketing, customer services, accounting, finance, clerical work etc.

      Dear Husnain, Its difficult for someone to sponsor a work visa unless they have a business where they can. I don’t know such organizations and they usually are fraud, take your money and vanish.

      Dear Asif,
      H1 visa is applied by the organization on your behalf. You just need to apply for different jobs. If someone thinks they need you and want to sponsor you a work visa they will issue H1 for you.

      Dear Saif, bahir se employee to bulanay ki cost bohat zyada hoti hai is liye employer ko agar bohat zyada zarorat ho ya wo apka rishtay daar ho ya apko favor dena chahta ho tab wo shayad apko bula le warna store main kaam karnay k liye log wahan aram se mil jatay hain. Ticket to depend karta hia app kahan se kahan ki le rahay hain lekin shayad dher lakh k kareeb ticket ho gi.

      Dear Harris, if she is the owner of business she must have lawyer there too. Its better if you discuss with her lawyer if she is really interested to get you there.

      Dear Fahad, agar wo keh rahay hain work permit lena paray ga to wo apkay brother ke liye word permit khud apply kar ke usko bula lain gay. App ko kisi kisam k koi paisay dena ki zarorat nahi hai. Agar wo app se paisay mang rahay hain to ye fraud hai. Is tarha koi bhi organization paisay nahi leti.

    Dear Sir,

    I just want to confirm , is there any interview required in L visa. I have heard for specialized worker no interview will be required.

    Moreover for L Visa company presence in Home country is mandatory or if company is planning to launch will be sufficient.
