Temporary Work Visa for self employed IT Consultant
I'm currently looking into the least painful way to have a US work visa granted.
I have been working as a freelancer for a UK based company for almost a year. In a few months they will be hosting an art fair in the US. I will be tasked with setting up and looking after their IT equipment over the course of a couple of weeks.
I imagine I will need a short term non-immigrant visa with an approved I-129 petition. I am however unsure which specific Visa to apply for.
I do have the option of going on temporary payroll if this would make the application any easier however I would prefer to avoid this for tax reasons.
Any insight would be appreciated.
