In today’s interconnected world, small businesses are not confined by geographical boundaries.

Siri & Glimstad’s partnership with RedBalloon marks a significant milestone in their commitment to simplifying the immigration process for small businesses. By sharing their wealth of knowledge, the immigration team at Siri & Glimstad is extending a helping hand to small business owners who are considering navigating the complex legal terrain of U.S. immigration with confidence and success.
The collaboration between Siri & Glimstad and RedBalloon arrives at a time when small businesses are struggling to stay a step ahead within an increasingly competitive talent market. As the global economy evolves, the ability to tap into foreign talent has become a strategic advantage. However, the intricacies of U.S. business immigration often deter small businesses from pursuing this avenue. The Siri & Glimstad partnership with RedBalloon seeks to break down the complexities and equip small business owners with the knowledge required to access international talent while adhering to immigration laws.
The process of sponsoring foreign workers for temporary and permanent positions in the U.S. involves navigating a labyrinthine network of government agencies and regulations. From U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) to the Department of Labor (DOL), and from the Department of State (DOS) to U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP), each entity plays a pivotal role in the immigration process. The collaboration between Siri & Glimstad and RedBalloon aims to unravel this intricate web, offering a clear roadmap to small business owners who aspire to leverage foreign talent.
Siri & Glimstad highlights the significance of temporary visas in meeting immediate business needs. The H-1B visa, in particular, is a widely used option for professional-level workers. Engineers, software developers, accountants, marketing specialists, doctors, and more can find their way to the U.S. under this visa category. By outlining the H-1B process, including prevailing wage mandates, filing fees, and processing times, the partnership empowers small businesses to consider this option with clarity and confidence.
Moreover, businesses can explore other temporary visa categories, such as the L-1 visa for intra-company transfers, the TN visa for Canadian and Mexican professionals, and the O-1 visa for individuals with extraordinary abilities in their respective domains. By presenting a comprehensive overview of available options, Siri & Glimstad and RedBalloon ensure that small business owners are equipped with the necessary insights to make informed decisions regarding their talent acquisition strategies.
For businesses seeking to establish a long-term commitment to foreign talent, the partnership helps businesses understand the process of obtaining permanent visas, commonly referred to as green cards. The journey involves multiple stages, including PERM labor certification at times, I-140 petition approval, and the submission of an I-485 application to adjust the foreign worker’s status to that of a permanent resident. Siri & Glimstad underscores the significance of these steps, shedding light on potential challenges such as government requests for evidence or denials.
Moreover, the two partners also underscore the importance of seeking expert legal guidance. Siri & Glimstad’s collaboration with RedBalloon extends beyond a mere compilation of information; it offers small business owners a lifeline to navigate the intricate green card journey with diligence and clarity.
A fundamental aspect of Siri & Glimstad and RedBalloon’s mission is to clarify the involvement of various U.S. government agencies in the immigration process. From U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) to the Department of Labor (DOL), each entity plays a distinct role, creating a landscape that can be overwhelming for small businesses. By providing insights into the functions of these agencies, the partnership seeks to empower small business owners with a comprehensive understanding of the immigration process.
In a time when the global talent market is fiercely competitive, the partnership between Siri & Glimstad and RedBalloon is invaluable for deciphering the intricacies of U.S. business immigration and empowering small business owners to tackle the challenges with confidence.
