WHAT IS AN H-1B VISA?
In the United States, an H-1B Visa is a type of nonimmigrant visa. When a company in the United States wants to employ a worker in a certain special field, then they can apply for an H-1B Visa. If you have a Bachelor’s degree or higher in a special occupation, then you can apply for a H-1B Visa to come work for a company in the United States. Some of the fields that allow you to apply for an H1-B Visa are mathematics, science, medicine, engineering, architecture, accounting, finance, and information technology. If you have a high level of education in a special field and are looking for a visa to come work in the United States, then an H-B1 Visa is the type of visa you want to apply to obtain. H1-B Visas are easier to apply for than green cards, and more U.S. companies have a tendency to go for them because it is a quicker process. When a company wants to bring in a noncitizen for a longer term assignment within the United States, the best visa to obtain is the H-1B Visa.
