U.S. immigration laws provide various types of employees the opportunity to come to the United States to work in different fields and industries. Business immigration has allowed many deserving and talented individuals enter the United States for legitimate work-related purposes, but this process has become significantly more difficult under the current presidential administration. There are now additional and more expensive fees associated with business-related immigration.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently initiated additional fees for international students, new citizens and businesses that are seeking work authorization. This is one of the many regulations put in place by the president to curtail immigration this year. These fees and the other new restrictions have only served to make it significantly more difficult for those hoping to work in the country or become citizens to reach their goals. Certain Florida businesses are experiencing negative impacts as well.

Businesses in certain industries will bear the responsibility of paying these new fees, and it will serve to discourage bringing otherwise deserving employees into the country. Critics of the fees state that these are simply new taxes that will unfairly and negatively affect potential employees. Opponents plan to protest these fees and challenge the administration’s current policies on immigration.

Business immigration can be a complex and challenging process. It is helpful for an individual or a business to work with a experienced Florida immigration law attorney at every step of this process. From completing paperwork to knowing what fees are required, experienced guidance can prove exceptionally helpful during this often lengthy and frustrating endeavor.
