About this Event

Many American start-ups turn to foreign talent to fill open positions. But with the alphabet soup of work visas, it can be complicated for both the employer and the employee! Join an expert at the Germantown Innovation Center for a general introduction to U.S. immigration system. We’ll cover such topics as:

• Main non-immigrant (or temporary) visa categories available to U.S. employers who want to sponsor foreign workers, including H-1B, TN, E-3, L-1, H-1B1, O-1, J-1, and F-1

• Green card sponsorship options for workers and entrepreneurs

• Immigration compliance for U.S. employers

Free event. A light lunch will be provided. Parking is free at the Germantown Innovation Center; follow the signage.
