"Visa Pages" - U.S. Temporary Foreign Worker Visas

"Visa Pages" is a one-stop resource to find comprehensive information about the various non-immigrant visas U.S. employers use to bring temporary foreign workers from all over the world to work in the U.S.

Each page contains detailed information summarizing key points of each visa, its history, the hiring process, data, basic regulatory scheme, enforcement mechanisms and challenges in seeking portable justice for migrant workers. Throughout each visa page there are links to reports and resource documents as well as highlighted sections in the text where readers may dig deeper. The intention is to leave each page with a understanding and perspective on the interplay of temporary worker programs in the U.S.

Unauthorized Workers

Unauthorized residents are foreign-born non-citizens who do not reside legally in the United States. These are defined as residents who entered legally on visas and have overstayed the required date of departure, migrants who entered through unauthorized means, and migrants who have applied for asylum or Temporary Protected Status.10
