Question: I would like to apply for a “live-in” maid from Pakistan on a Need Employment Visa. How can I do it?

Answer: Unfortunately there is no specific category set out for “live-in” maids in the employment category. The temporary visas under H2B was previously used but its extremely difficult to get an approval now. The USCIS and DOL does not consider that this kind of workers are not available within this country. You could try for this person under “Skilled Worker EB-3 category” with a permanent job offer and for Pakistan, this may enable the person to come within few years. Please be aware that this is a lengthy, expensive and unpredictable process.
