If you are looking to work in the US, you will be required to have a visa which is proof that you can legally travel and enter the United States. The type of work that you are starting and the duration that is required for you to stay in the US will result in the type of visa that you need. There is a range of different US work visas that are currently available, H-1B visas tend to be for applicants who are looking for temporary employment in the US for specialist occupations. If you are applying for a job that requires theoretical or technical expertise and services that is related to the Department of Defence’s cooperative research such as engineering, mathematics, science, medicine, IT or finance then the H-1B visa should be applicable for you. However, if you have a bachelor's degree or higher then you may also be eligible. 

When looking to apply for a US work visa, it is important to know that the visa process consists of two phases, an initial petition from your potential US employer and yourself, then an interview with the US embassy. If you are successful, a H-1B US work visa can be granted for an initial duration of three years and can then be extended for a further three if necessary. If you have children under the age of 21, they may be able to acquire H-4 visas which will allow them to live and be schooled in the US but does not allow them to work.
