Working in Chicago Through an H1B visa

If you already secured a job with a U.S based employer, and are planning to move to Chicago, then you need to apply for an H1B visa. Which is a temporary, non-immigrant visa, that is popular and commonly used by employer who wish to bring foreign nationals to work in specialty occupations, which are usually complex position that require exceptional merit and knowledge as well as a certain level of education.

Applying for an H1B visa can be quite overwhelming and a lot to handle especially for foreign nationals who are not used to U.S law rules and regulations that are generally very strict. Which is why it would be wiser to invest in getting the help of an H1B immigration attorney.

What are the H1B visa requirements?

The United States has very strict policies when it comes to visas, each visa type and category has certain eligibility conditions and requirements, and finding the right visa type for your specific situation is the first thing to do to get a positive outcome. Some of the most important eligibility requirements for the H1B visa are the following:

  • First, you must secure a job with a reliable U.S based employer and the job itself has to meet the specialty occupation conditions.
  • A specialty occupation is a profession that normally requires a bachelor’s degrees (or higher) in a specialty field and a highly specialized knowledge as a minimum entry level.
  • The employer that hired you is responsible for your H1B visa application and he has to file a labor condition with the Department of Labor regarding the terms and conditions of their contract with you.
  • You must demonstrate that you have the ability to work in that particular job and are skilled enough to perform the required duties.
  • You must prove that you are coming to the U.S to work in that particular specialty occupation and not to pursue a hobby or to give free advice or any humanitarian service.

The above-mentioned are a few examples of the H1B visa eligibility criteria; you can find a detailed list by checking the USCIS H-1B Specialty Occupations !
