H-1B Specialty Workers Visa

The H-1B Visa allows businesses to sponsor highly skilled non-U.S. citizens to work in the United States temporarily.

Requirements for H-1B workers
There are specific requirements that workers have to meet in order to be approved:

  • They must have jobs in specific areas, like IT, computing, finance, accounting, banking, engineering, teaching, medical, legal, or telecommunications.
  • They must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in their specialized field, or the equivalent in years of on-the-job experience.

Application process for H-1B Visas
The employer must submit a completed Labor Condition Application to promise that the following things are true:

  • Giving the non-U.S. citizens a job does not harm American workers.
  • The non-U.S. citizens will be paid the typical wage for the job they do.
  • The workers will no longer have a job if there is a strike or lock-out.

What to do after the application is approved
Once the application is approved, the employer must file a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. A prevailing wage determination is also needed. This proves that non-U.S. citizens will not be paid less than the average amount of what everyone else is paid for that job.

Contact us
There is a limit to how many H-1B Visas are approved each year. Since there are so many employers who want to hire non-U.S. citizens and so few visas granted, you should talk to an attorney.

We understand the extremely detailed process of getting work authorization in the U.S. We can help you prepare the petition and application. We will also review all the supporting documents to make sure you do not make common mistakes that lead to the rejection of many applications each year.
