The answer is yes. In fact, there are a number of qualified immigration attorneys who specialize in helping churches and charities with their immigration issues. While few people qualify for the H-1B visa as a “nonprofit organization” or “religious worker”, anyone working at a church should be able to apply for an employment authorization document (EAD). The key point here is that this EAD will allow your employer to sponsor you for H-1B status through the proper channels – but not until after your first year on the job.
