H-1B Visas in Baltimore

If you're a skilled professional looking to work in the U.S., you may be able to apply for an H-1B visa.

The Griffith Immigration Law is experienced and current with the changing immigration laws and procedures, so your application is filed correctly and processed as quickly as possible. Contact us today to learn more about H-1B visas!

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 Griffith Immigration Law.

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.
