H1- B Visa Attorney
H-1B Visas for Working Professionals
PHOENIX H1-B WORK VISA ATTORNEY
The H-1B visa allows non-U.S. workers to temporarily work in the U.S. in a specialty occupation. A specialty occupation is generally regarded as requiring a higher degree or equivalent work experience due to the specialized or complex knowledge required to perform the position. The degree should also be relevant to the type of job position sought.
To apply for the H-1B visa, the applicant must have:
- A job offer with a prevailing wage from a U.S. employer.
- The prospective job must be in a specialty occupation related to the employee’s field of study.
The prospective job may be related to Department of Defense (DOD) research, or the prospective employee may be a fashion model of distinguished merit to qualify under the H-1B specialty occupation program.
USCIS requires a certified Labor Condition Application (LCA) from the Department of Labor (DOL) before you can apply for the H-1B visa. An LCA requires certain attestations by the employer relating to working conditions, wage, benefits and labor disputes.
Due to an annual quota of available H-1B visas and surplus of applicants each year, USCIS has created a lottery system for prospective applicants. Employers are required to register during the designated period to be selected through the lottery.
USCIS issues 65,000 new H-1B visas during each fiscal year, and an additional 20,000 visas are issued to those with higher degrees, such as a master’s degree or doctoral.
