Trust Your Case to Panteva Law Group, LLC
Through the H-1B visa, employers can hire qualified workers from out of the country on a temporary basis for specialty occupations. There is a cap of 65,000 H-1B visas every fiscal year; those with a U.S. master’s degree or higher have an additional 20,000 petitions. Attorney Panteva of Panteva Law Group, LLC can help you apply for an H-1B visa or seek an H-1B on behalf of a prospective employee.
What Is the H-1B Visa Process?
Essentially, the process for obtaining an H-1B visa begins with a U.S. employer sponsoring an applicant and petitioning the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
If the USCIS approves the H-1B petition, the foreign worker can either update their status if they are already in the United States or go to their nearest U.S. embassy to receive the H-1B. The visa is granted for three years initially with an option to extend it for another three years.
What Are the Requirements for the H-1B Visa?
For the USCIS to approve H-1B visa petitions, certain criteria must be met. It is also important that all forms and evidence are submitted correctly. One minor mistake could set back the whole process.
To be eligible for an H-1B, you must:
- Be pursuing a specialty occupation
- Have at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in an area related to the job
