Our mobility program takes the stress out of the visa application process for international Collabera consultants. Because a dream shouldn’t be wrapped in red tape.
At Collabera, we don’t shy away from helping in-demand expertise through the visa process, free of charge.
Our dedicated visa team is devoted to helping you through the entire end-to-end process, from the visa application to your work with one of our clients, and beyond.
Our diverse client pool means you’ll always have a shot at a new project whenever your previous one comes to an end. (We believe moving to a new country should be worth your while.)
We also provide cultural support to help you ease into life in the US, so your time here can be both professionally and personally fruitful.

H1B (and Green Card processing)
The visa An H1B visa allows US employers to temporarily employ international workers in specialty positions for up to six years.
The process Collabera is not an H1B dependant company which allows us to focus more resources on providing you with dedicated and sustained support.
Oct - Feb
From October to February, our recruitment team determines which skills are most in demand for the next year, then determines how many H1B visa applicants we can support.
Mar - Apr
We’ll spend the next couple months recruiting you, and helping you fill out a visa application! H1B visa applications are submitted to the visa lottery in bulk by April 1st.
May - Oct
If your application is chosen in the lottery — usually a couple weeks after the April 1st deadline — we’ll spend the next 6-7 months helping you through the approval process, and preparing you to travel to the US on or after the October 1st welcome day.
H1B visas are only valid for six years. As your employer, we will help you file for green card processing once the 6 years has passed. We often have have consultants actively employed with us for that long.
The visa The Non-immigrant NAFTA Professional (TN) visa allows citizens of Mexico and Canada to work in the USA for U.S or foreign employers if they have an active job offer. This visa is not available for permanent residents of Canada or Mexico.
The process Applicants must have the equivalent of a 4-year bachelor’s degree from a US university. (In general, 3 years of professional experience is equivalent to one year of a US degree program.) These visas are doled out on a rolling basis throughout the year, so the application/acceptance process is relatively quick.
Collabera provides your job offer; you’re an employee of Collabera even if you’re consulting with one of our many clients. Our dedicated in-house team takes care of the application process for you and provides sustained support throughout your employment.
The visa The E3 visa classification allows citizens of Australia to work in the US in specialized employment positions. This visa allows the principal applicant to bring their spouse and children (who are not required to be Australian citizens.)
The process The application process for the E3 visa almost exactly mirrors that of the TN visa described above though it’s specifically for Australian citizens. Needless to say, our team will handle the application process for you and support you throughout your entire journey.
