Temporary employment visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period of time, and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each of these visas requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). An approved petition is required to apply for a temporary employment visa.
The U.S. Consulate General Curacao provides limited petition based NIV processing.
Interested applicants can apply for
- O (Persons with Extraordinary Ability),
- P (Athletes, Artists, Entertainers),
- Q (International Cultural Exchange), and
- R (Religious Worker) visa categories.
For all other temporary employment visa categories please refer to your nearest Embassy.
