What is an H1B visa?

The H1B visa belongs to the non-immigrant visa category, it is specifically designed for business owners and employers who wish to bring highly skilled foreign nationals to the U.S for work, to occupy special vacancies that are usually very complex position that require exceptional merit and knowledge as well as a certain level of education.

Before applying for an H1B visa you have to make sure that you meet all eligibility requirements and that the job position you are planning to perform satisfies the specialty occupation standards. Even though it may seem simple, applying for an H1B visa comes with its own challenges, which is why we recommend that you consult with a well-versed immigration attorney before moving forward with your application.

What are the H1B visa eligibility requirements?

To be eligible for an H1B visa there are certain requirements and conditions that you must fulfill. The USCIS will scrutinize and carefully review your application and will have no hesitation to reject it in case it does not satisfy the specialty occupation standards and if they find any misleading, wrong or missing information.

Therefore, it is better to be safe than sorry and make sure that all paperwork is correctly presented and that you meet all the eligibility requirements, which include the following:

  • The most important condition is to have a credible job offer from a U.S based employer that satisfies the specialty occupation standards. Which means that the job vacancy as the USCIS sees it, has duties and responsibilities that are so specialized and complex that they require expert and specialized knowledge from a specific field of study and only a person who holds, at least, a Bachelor’s degree in an academic field directly related to that specific work or the equivalent in combined education and experience in return will be able to perform them.

  • The required degree for the job has to be common to the industry among similar organizations.
  • The Employer has to file a labor condition with the Department of Labor concerning the terms and conditions of their contract with you.
  • You must demonstrate that you have the ability to work in that particular job and have the necessary skills 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.

Do you need an immigration attorney when applying for an H1B visa?

Navigating through the legal procedures of applying for an H1B visa can be exhausting, especially if you are a foreigner and not used to the U.S legal system and its rules and regulations.

Which is why it is advisable to have an immigration attorney by your side while you explore your options and prepare your application.
