If you want to work in the U.S. temporarily as a nonimmigrant, under U.S. immigration law, you need a specific visa based on the type of work you will be doing. Most temporary worker categories require that your prospective employer or agent file a petition, which must be approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in the United States before you can have an approved work permit. The consular officer will verify your petition approval through the Department of State’s Petition Information Management Service (PIMS) during your interview.
