What documents do you need for an employment visa?

On Behalf of | Aug 17, 2020 | Immigration Law

As an immigrant hoping to work in Georgia, you have likely already done research into visas. Employment-based visas will likely hold the most benefit to you. There are many different types of employment-based visas to look into. 

But first, you cannot go into this blind, or you may upset your chances of approval. The first thing you should work out is what you need for your application. Fortunately, most employment visas have similar requirements. 

Gather all necessary documents

The Bureau of Consular Affairs details what immigrants need for employment-based visas. This includes a list of the documentation you will need before applying. First, you must have a passport. You must have six months of time on it from your intended date of entry. In some cases, the U.S. Embassy or Consulate may request a longer period of time. You will also need two passport photographs. 

Next, you must have your civil documents. This can include birth and marriage certificates. You need to bring along the original copies. You may also want to take photocopied versions of the originals, too. If you need translations for any document, plan this in advance. 

Prove financial stability

You must show that you have financial support. A portion of the interview will go toward you proving that you can stand on your own two feet. The interviewing officer will ensure you till not become a public charge. 

Finally, you need completed medical examination forms. You must go through a medical examination and a series of vaccinations before entry. A panel physician will provide you with the necessary forms after that point.
