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.


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.
  • 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.

      He can apply for the US visit visa from US embassy in Saudi Arabia. It will be easier than it is in Pakistan and all his family might get visa on time before October.

      What do you mean? Please read the post first. Its not something you can buy. Mostly the companies who sponsor the visas pay the fee as well.

          Its not a mazak and nothing personal. I have no authority to give visa. I can just advice. The easiest way to get in United States is that k App apni education complete karo (Bachelors), specially in IT or technical field or koshish karo k Masters main apko admission mil jaye. Is tarha USA main a kar app education k baad easily job kar saktay ho. Please ye link details se check karain.

    I really appreciate, how effectively replying to each and every query made by aspirants to travel to USA. I need your guidance, I am a business economics graduate, currently working with the govt. department (6 years work exp.). I want to work/ immigrate to USA. My first cousin (adopted sister) live in USA and is a green card holder, wll be citizen next year, her kids are US citizens already. I have been to foreign countries like Philippines, Thailand and USA( this year on B1/B2) for Training/ conference.
    Please guide me what is best possible option for me to move to US
    , since my sister is adopted so not sure if she could apply for my green card and the other only option is H1, between I am planning to learn some basic IT courses that might help me to get H1.
    Looking forward for your kind response.

      Dear Sana,
      Thanks for appreciating. US citizens can sponsor green card to their siblings however it’s a long and lengthy process and US govt gives the least priority to give permanent residence to the siblings. I know a family, they got US immigration 20 years ago, their brother had applied for their immigration 30 years ago so they had to wait for 10 years and those were the good times. Even if she isn’t adopted she can’t help you immediately however if she wants to apply for an immigrant visa for you, keep in mind that you might get after 10 or 20 year. She can only apply when she is a citizen first and after that if your father names are different I am not sure how it will work.
      With the current employment situation in United States, you have to be a specialist in something that will give you an edge. Basic IT courses might not help I am afraid. Every year hundreds of thousands of students comes to United States to study and after completing their studies they want to settle there, some of them do but some of them have to go back. Priority is always given to the people already in United States so its very hard to be hired while you are in Pakistan.
      The best path I can suggest you is to take admission in PhD economics or Masters in Economics in any university in United States. If you are lucky you can find funding and your education might cost you nothing and you can get a job and visa sponsorship in United States after you are done with your studies. If you need more info on that, do let me know.

    Respected admin, Yesterday I have received an offer letter from a US company for a job. The company assured me for that they will pay for my visa and ticket also but they also told that I have to purchase work permit myself on my personal expenses. Kindly tell me the procedure and total charges I have to pay for the work permit. I hold M.Sc (Hons) / M.phil degree from Pakistani University.

      Dear Sajid,
      1. Kya app ye bata saktay hain k unhon ne ksi type k visa k liye apply kia hia? immigrant ya non-immigrant?
      2. Visa cancellation se koi farak nahi parta, uska sirf itna matlab hai k app us visa par Oman travel nahi kar saktay. Agar visa date guzar janay k baad (expired visa) k baad bhi app kisi country main rahayen tab problem hota hia.

          Dear Sajid, you are welcome. Immigrant visa jab successfully submit ho jata hai tab app tracking kar saktay hain. Agar apki wife ke dada family ki base par immigrant visa apply kar rahay hain to I am sorry mujhey is procedure ka nahi pata coz mere khiyal se to pootay ya pootiyon ka immigrant visa apply nahi kia ja sakta. Agar Apki age 21 se kam hai to apkay sasrur ki immigration k sath apki or apki wife ki immigration ho sakti hia kion k apki wife k dada ke betay apkay sasur hain. I am not sure apkay Dada kis tarha apply kar rahay hain is liye is silsalay main apko mazeed kuch guide nahi kia ja sakta. App please ye link check kijye ga

          Dear Fahar, if an organization offers you a job and also ready to sponsor you a work visa then you can work there. No one can guide you about how much time would it take to process visa.

    Hello Admin..
    I really appreciate your effort of helping people who needs any assistance regarding visa..
    My Questions is that i want to apply for a H1 visa.. I have a relative in USA who is running his own business there, so how can he help in getting such visa?
    or should i apply for a visit visa so then can i work there with him?

    • admin Post authorReply

      Dear Safi,
      To sponsor H1 visa his business needs to meet some requirements. Its better if he consult a lawyer to see if he is eligible to sponsor a a can visit on visit visa however if your documents are not ready there, you will need to come back or your visit will be considered illegal after 6 months. Also on visit visa you can’t work.

      Dear Shezan,
      You would need to arrange meetings with prospective clients and apply for business visit visa. You should have all your business documents and you must know in advance where you are going and what clients you are meeting.

    Sir my case is bit different. I’m an engineer by profession belongs to Lahore. I’ve a GF who I met online a year ago. She belongs to Pakistan but lives in USA as her aunt adopted her after her parents demise when she was 14.
    I never met her in person but now we want to meet. She can’t come to Pakistan as her family wouldn’t allow her.

    God bless you

      Dear kashif,
      You can apply for tourist visit visa. If you have a stable job and you are drawing a good monthly salary and have a bank statement that can proof that you have enough money to afford this trip than you might have a chance in getting a visa.
