If working in the US is your major concern then, you must apply for a working visa. Usually, a visa needs to be applied to the US Department of State (DOS).

But several countries do not require a working visa in the US and can work freely.

The working visas in the US are categorized as non-immigrant visas and immigrant visas. But, several other categories authorize people to work in the US. Each of the visas has its own requirements and eligibilities.

Having high skills, education, and years of work experience, may allow people to work in the US permanently. The collaboration of these three allow people to work on an employment-based immigrant visa.

Generally, to apply for a work visa in the US, first, USCIS must approve your petition. Then, only you can apply through DOS for the visa.

Residing in the US as a lawful nonimmigrant doesn't give people the legal rights to work. They have to go through certain procedures that will authorize them to work in the US legally.
