What do you need to do in order to obtain a visa? There are many different types of visas that permit you to enter into (and, depending upon your specific set of circumstances), to live and to work in the United States. As a fact sheet from the U.S. Department of State explains, there are generally two different types of visa categories:
When it comes to nonimmigrant visas, the categories are extremely vast in number. In brief, however, a person can obtain a nonimmigrant visa for many different purposes, such as to compete in an athletic event, to conduct business, to engage in work or employment, to receive medical treatment, to conduct medical work, to engage in tourism, to study as a student, to seek protection if you are a victim of criminal activity or human trafficking, or to reunite with a spouse or children who already are lawful permanent residents. These are just some of the many purposes for which a nonimmigrant visa can be granted.
The list of categories for immigrant visas is still somewhat expansive, but it is shorter than the list of persons for whom a nonimmigrant visa may be issued.

Within those categories, the U.S. Department of State lists the following subcategories:

My experience with this law firm, especially with the lawyer Erin Cobb, I am grateful she was amazing. She tried so hard for my case. She was super friendly I definitely recommend this place if you are looking for immigration legal help.
My wife and I used Kevin Raica for her green card application. The entire process was seamless and everyone we dealt with was wonderful. We highly recommend this firm.
We are very happy that Mr Justin is helping us !!!
Erin is such a great, professional and experienced attorney. Ms. Cobb handled my case of RFE for H1B change of status very efficiently. She was truly very helpful all the way thru, head to tail, until I got the approval. I really appreciate her work with me and with my employer!
