Key takeaways

Visa sponsorship is when an individual, company, or organization in the United States assists a foreign national in obtaining a visa or green card, allowing them to live and work in the country.

Getting visa sponsorship for a U.S. work visa involves finding an employer in the United States willing to hire you and sponsor your visa application.

Depending on the visa type, there are different requirements a job must meet to qualify for visa sponsorship.

What is visa sponsorship?

What is visa sponsorship?

Visa sponsorship is when someone, a company, or an organization in the United States helps a foreign national get a visa or green card to live and work in the country.


The sponsor supports the visa application by providing the necessary paperwork to the U.S. government and takes on responsibilities to ensure the individual follows U.S. immigration laws.

For employers, sponsoring a visa means committing to hire a foreign national and assisting them in getting the legal permission to work in the United States. This process typically involves submitting forms and documents to prove that the job can't be filled by a U.S. worker and that the foreign national is qualified for the position.

Family-based sponsorship

Family-based sponsorship is when a family member who is a U.S. citizen or a green card holder helps another family member from another country come and live in the United States permanently.

Family-based sponsorship is when a family member who is a U.S. citizen or a green card holder helps another family member from another country come and live in the United States permanently.

If you have been asked to assess the work of other people in your field, this might help you qualify for one of the O1 visa criteria. Judging can be in a competitive setting, such as a contest, awards panel, or grants committee. Or, it can be an evaluation of someone’s work, like a scientific paper or presentation, or even a grant application.


The key here is that some organization thought you were the go-to person with ample expertise to assess the work of others. This shows USCIS that you are seen as someone who stands out from others in your work.


If you think you can meet the “judge of others” criteria and at least two other criteria on the list of O1 visa evidence, you could be ready to apply! Reach out to Manifest Law and we can help you put your best case forward.

Requirements

The person sponsoring must be a U.S. citizen or a green card holder.

The family member being sponsored must be a spouse, parent, child, or sibling of the sponsor (depending on the sponsor's status).

The sponsor needs to prove they can financially support the family member they're sponsoring.

The family member being sponsored must meet certain requirements, pass medical checks, and have no disqualifying criminal record.

How it works

File Petition (Form I-130): The U.S. citizen or green card holder family member files a petition (Form I-130) with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to show the family relationship.

Wait for Approval: After submitting the petition, the USCIS reviews it. Once approved, the case goes to the National Visa Center (NVC).

NVC Processing: The NVC processes the case, assigns a case number, and asks for necessary documents from both the sponsor and the sponsored family member.

Interview and Visa Processing: Once all documents are received and processed, the sponsored family member attends an interview at the U.S. embassy or consulate in their home country. If approved, they get an immigrant visa to enter the United States.

File Petition (Form I-129): The employer files a petition (Form I-129) with the USCIS for the foreign worker.

Wait for Approval: USCIS reviews the petition. If approved, and if the worker is outside the U.S., the case goes to the NVC.

NVC Processing (for consular processing): The NVC processes the case, schedules an interview at the U.S. embassy or consulate in the worker's home country.

Adjustment of Status (if needed): If the worker is already in the U.S., they may apply for a green card after USCIS approves the petition.

  • Your investment must create or preserve at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers.


How Long It Lasts:


  • The EB5 visa leads to permanent residency (green card) in the United States. Once granted, it doesn't expire.


For any of these visas, you'll need a U.S. employer (or as an investor for the EB5) to sponsor you. Each visa has different requirements and leads to permanent residency (a green card). 


If you're considering one of these visas, it's a good idea to consult with an immigration attorney to explore your options and ensure you meet the visa sponsorship requirements.

The EB5 visa is for immigrant investors who are willing to invest a significant amount of capital in a new commercial enterprise that creates jobs for U.S. workers.

Employment-based visa sponsorship process

Step 1: Understand your visa options


Before you start your job search, it's essential to understand which type of work visa you're eligible for based on your skills, qualifications, and the job you intend to get in the U.S. 


Common types of work visas include the H-1B visa for specialty occupation workers, the L-1 visa for intracompany transferees, and the O-1 visa for individuals with extraordinary abilities.


Step 2: Start your job search


Begin your job search by looking for openings in your field that are open to hiring foreign workers and are willing to sponsor work visas.


You can start by searching for job opportunities on online job portals like Indeed, Glassdoor, and LinkedIn. Use keywords like "visa sponsorship," "H1B sponsorship," or "sponsorship available" to narrow down your search results.


If you have a specific company or position in mind, try exploring company career pages, as some companies explicitly mention if they offer visa sponsorship.


Step 3: Get hired!


Once you receive a job offer, negotiate the terms of your employment, including salary, benefits, and visa sponsorship. Make sure the employer understands the visa sponsorship process and is committed to supporting your visa application.


Step 4: Employer files petition


After accepting a job offer, your employer will initiate the visa sponsorship process by filing a petition on your behalf with USCIS. The specific form will depend on the type of visa you're applying for. 

Check the table below for the forms for each type of visa:

Sponsorship letter for visa

Sponsorship letter for visa

What is a sponsorship letter?

A sponsorship letter for a visa is a document written by a sponsor (an individual, organization, or company) to support a visa application submitted by a foreign national. 


It serves as a formal declaration of the sponsor's commitment to provide financial and/or logistical support to the visa applicant during their stay in the U.S.


The purpose of the sponsorship letter is to show that the visa applicant will have sufficient financial resources and support to cover their expenses while staying in the U.S. 


This letter assures immigration authorities that the visa applicant will not become a burden on the country's welfare system and will comply with the terms of their visa.

If you have been asked to assess the work of other people in your field, this might help you qualify for one of the O1 visa criteria. Judging can be in a competitive setting, such as a contest, awards panel, or grants committee. Or, it can be an evaluation of someone’s work, like a scientific paper or presentation, or even a grant application.


The key here is that some organization thought you were the go-to person with ample expertise to assess the work of others. This shows USCIS that you are seen as someone who stands out from others in your work.

A sponsorship letter usually includes the following information:


  • Introduction: The sponsor's name, address, and contact details.

  • Statement of Sponsorship: A clear statement expressing the sponsor's willingness to support the visa applicant financially and/or logistically during their stay.

  • Relationship to the Applicant: An explanation of the sponsor's relationship to the visa applicant — such as family member, friend, employer, educational institution.

  • Details of Support: Information about the type of support the sponsor will provide, such as financial assistance, accommodation, transportation, etc.

  • Financial Information: Details of the sponsor's financial resources, including income, savings, assets, and any other financial commitments.

  • Duration of Support: The amount of time the sponsor intends to provide support to the visa applicant.

  • Signature: The letter should be signed by the sponsor, and in some cases, notarized to confirm its authenticity.
