The Treaty Trader Visa (nonimmigrant E-1 classification) is intended for the nationals of a foreign country with which a qualifying Treaty of friendship, Commerce, navigation, or a similar agreement exists with the United States.

You are not required to have a lawyer when applying for an immigrant visa or green card in the United States or overseas. If you have a straightforward case, are clearly eligible for the benefit you seek, and have no record of crimes or negative run-ins with immigration authorities, you can potentially proceed all the way to a visa or green card without a lawyer. In fact, if you are overseas, lawyers cannot attend consular interviews with you, though they are allowed to prepare the paperwork and have follow-up communications with the consulates.
However, there are numerous types of situation when you’ll need a lawyer’s help — or will save yourself a lot of time and aggravation by getting it. Immigration law is notoriously, insanely complicated, and it’s run by a bureaucracy that receives less oversight and public scrutiny than you might expect.
Immigration law seems deceptively easy. However, it is a minefield full of traps for the unwary, and behind every case must emanate a well thought-through strategy. While it is true that almost anyone can fill out forms, immigration law is about so much more than that.
A qualified immigration lawyer will advise you on a host of issues and restrictions on work and travel that foreign nationals may face. Such rules may apply differently to those seeking non-immigrant versus immigrant status and oftentimes even apply to Permanent Residents, also known as “Green Card.”

In this case study we describe a problem for a hospitality employer facing a need to hire seasonal workers.
The H-2B nonimmigrant visa program permits employers to hire foreign workers to come to the U.S. and perform temporary nonagricultural work, which may be one-time, seasonal, peak load or intermittent and there are no qualified and willing U.S. workers available for the job. Note that this visa is not available for “temporary” agencies or other work placement agencies.
There is a 66,000 per year limit on the number of foreign workers who may receive H-2B status during each USCIS fiscal year (October through September). The process for obtaining H-2B certification is similar to, but less extensive and time consuming, than permanent certification. You are eligible for the H-2B Visa provided that you have a valid job offer from a US employer to perform temporary or seasonal non-agricultural work and that you intend to return to your home country on expiration of the visa.
