Work Permit Definition

A work permit is an official document that authorizes its holder to seek and take employment in a foreign country legally.

Employers are always required to verify that an individual whom they plan to employ or continue to employ in the United States has a valid work permit. Individuals, who have been admitted as permanent residents, granted asylum or refugee status, or admitted in work-related nonimmigrant classifications, may have employment authorization as a direct result of their immigration status. Other aliens may need to apply individually for Employment Authorization Document.

The United States welcomes thousands of foreign workers in multiple occupations or employment categories every year. These include artists, researchers, cultural exchange participants, information technology specialists, religious workers, investors, scientists, athletes, nurses, agricultural workers and others. All foreign workers must obtain permission to work legally in the United States. Each employment category for admission has different requirements, conditions and authorized periods of stay.
