What is the H-1B Visa?

The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows U.S. companies to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. The visa is initially granted for up to three years, with the possibility of a one-time extension of an additional three years.

The H-1B visa is divided into several sub-categories, depending on the type of employment and the sponsoring company. For example, the H-1B visa can be used to hire foreign workers for temporary employment at a worksite in the United States, or it can be used to transfer a foreign worker to a new worksite within the United States. The H-1B visa can also be used to transfer a foreign worker to a new worksite in a different country.

The H-1B visa is only available to foreign workers with a bachelor's degree or higher. The H-1B visa process can be complex, and it is important that you work with an experienced immigration attorney to help you navigate the process.

How Does the H-1B Visa Process Work?

The process of applying for an H-1B visa will depend on whether you are the sponsoring company or the worker. In either case, you will need to meet certain eligibility requirements.

If you are the sponsoring company:

  • You will need to file a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This process can take several months, so you should start the application process early.
  • Once the petition is approved, you will need to send the approved petition to the worker. The worker will need to then apply for an H-1B visa with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in their home country.
  • The worker will need to obtain a medical examination and a visa interview at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate.
  • If the worker's visa is approved, they will need to return to the United States and begin working.
