Sports and Entertainment
If you're planning a short trip to the United States, you must, with certain exceptions, obtain a "non-immigrant" (temporary) visa. Temporary visas assume the intent to return to your home country but there are some exceptions to that rule. (H-1b, O-1, L-1, P-1).
Naturalization is the process by which U.S. citizenship is conferred upon a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by the USCIS.
Applying for permanent U.S. residence based upon an employment offer is generally a three-step process involving the U.S. Department of Labor and the Immigration and Naturalization Service. (PERM)
