H-1B SPECIAL OCCUPATION VISA

The H-1B Visa is a visa for specialty foreign professional workers. It is a non-immigrant work visa category under the Immigration & Nationality Act in the United States. It temporarily allows employers to seek temporary help for “specialty occupations”. To qualify for a “specialty occupation”, the person must have at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent for the application of highly specialized and theoretical knowledge. These “specialty occupations” include, but are not limited to, architecture, mathematics, engineering, social sciences, physical sciences, education, medicine and health, law, business specialties, accounting, the arts, and theology.

Qualifying for an H-1B visa will allow a person to stay temporarily (3 to 6 years) and to bring his or dependents (spouse and children) to the United States. The alien worker can be employed either full-time or part-time to qualify for an H-1B visa. With an H-1B visa, a worker is allowed to re-enter the country safely after traveling outside the United States whether for business or pleasure.

The process of applying for an H-1B visa is very complicated and it is best to seek the help of a Houston H-1B visa lawyer. Firs the Department of Labor must certify a labor condition application (LCA). The LCA requires the employer to meet certain requirements, such as providing appropriate wages. Another important part of a Texas H1B visa application is the letter of support authorized by the petitioning employer. An experienced H-1B visa attorney can draft this letter to convey a persuasive message to USCIS arbitrating officers.

There are hundreds of thousands of H-1B visa applicants a year, but the yearly quota for this visa is 65,000, with 6,800 of those set aside for Singaporean and Chilean citizens. Therefore, there are only 58,2000 available visas for citizens outside of those countries. It is very important to acquire a Houston H1-B visa lawyer that has the skill, practice, and experience to effectively execute your H1-B visa application.
