What Classifies an H-1B Visa?

The H-1B Visa is a nonimmigrant work visa that allows U.S. employers to hire foreign workers for specialty jobs. With the H-1B Visa program, companies can employ for occupations that require either theoretical or practical application of highly specialized knowledge. To learn more about the details of H-1B Visas, contact our team at the Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith.

Who Qualifies for H-1B Visa?

To qualify for an H-1B Visa, you must possess at least a bachelor’s degree in a special field of work. If you hold a master's degree from a U.S. institution, then there's an extra 20,000 visas available. The United States Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) designates certain occupations as being eligible for the H-1B classification. To learn more about whether your occupation qualifies, reach out to the Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith.

How to Apply for H-1B Visas?

The Law Office of Raymond O. Griffith can help with the application process for H-1B Visas. The first step is for your employer to file a petition on your behalf by completing a Labor Condition Application (LCA) and Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker. Once certified, your employer will file both the LCA and the I-129 to USCIS, along with any fees and additional documentation.
