H-1B Visa Requirements
The H-1B is a non-immigrant visa category that permits foreign nationals to work in the U.S. in a specialty occupation for a maximum period of 6 years.

Our experienced team can assists employers in drafting detailed job duties that rise to the level of specialty occupation.
Generally, a Bachelor’s Degree or higher is required, at a minimum, for entry into a specialty occupation in the U.S. If your degree is from a foreign institution, it will need to be evaluated to be determine whether it is equivalent to a degree attained in the U.S. for H-1B purposes.
