A work permit or right to work refers to his or her legal right to work in the United States. US citizens, whether born or naturalized, are always eligible to work in the United States, while foreign nationals may be allowed to work if they have an immigration status that allows them to work.
There are different categories of people who are allowed to work in the US. These include student/exchange workers, temporary workers, and permanent immigrant workers. Thus, the categories of people who are allowed to work in the country include non-citizens, state subjects, US citizens, non-citizens and non-residents with work permits, and lawful permanent residents.

- Permanent workers
