Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Lyndhurst H-1B visa attorney to learn more about these visas, whether you qualify, and how our firm can help you receive one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Who qualifies for an H-1B visa?
The first thing you should understand is that not everyone qualifies for an H-1B visa. Only foreign nationals in certain “specialty occupations” will qualify. Simply put, you’ll need specialized knowledge in a certain field and have a bachelor’s degree or the equivalent of such a degree in work experience. Some of the jobs that may qualify for H-1B visas include those in social sciences, education, law, accounting, medicine & health, physical sciences, accounting, mathematics, engineering, and architecture.
How do I get this visa and how long will it last?
To get an H-1B visa, you will first have to speak with a competent immigration attorney who can determine whether you should qualify. From there, we will apply for the visa, and as long as you are accepted, the visa will remain valid for up to three years. Typically, it takes up to 90 days for individuals to receive their visas. You should also note that you can extend the visa for another three years if you’re still looking to work for your employer. You should note, however, that if you are fired from your job or you quit, you will have to leave the country.
