HI,

Just wondering if someone can please tell me what is involved to get a citizen of Mexico legally working in the US. What paper work etc.

I thank you for any help that is given.

What kind of work will the person do? What education and experience does the
person have?

If the job requires a (4-year) college degree, and the person has such a degree, then
the H-1B category is a possibility. See http://www.americanlaw.com/h-1b.html. Also,
TN status is available to Mexicans in a similar situation for certain jobs in the
NAFTA Professionals list, but since TN is granted for only one year, and H-1B is
granted for 3 years, usually the employer obtains TN status.

This observation is for citizens of Mexico only. For Canadians, TN has the advantage
of being much less work for the employer. For Mexicans, getting TN status takes just
about as much effort as getting H-1B.

If the job requires less than a college degree, and the person has less than a
college degree, the options are limited. See http://www.americanlaw.com/h-2b.html,
for example.
