About the H1B Visa
The H1B visa is a nonimmigration visa which allows an employer to temporarily hire a foreign employee within a specialty occupation. Specialty occupations are those that that require specialized knowledge within a field.
An employer can attain an H1B Visa for fields including:
- And more...
With an H1B visa, an employee is eligible to stay in the United States for a maximum of six years. Originally, the employee can be approved for three years and then later be approved for an additional three-year extension. There are situations in which the six-year maximum is not applicable, such as the employee spends less than six months of every year in the United States.
It is possible to speed up the petition and approval process for your H1B visa. At the time of filing or while the petition is still pending, you can pay an additional fee to request Premium Processing. This is a quick way to speed up the process even before it starts. Also, if your petition has been pending for 30 days past the pending point, our Fremont business immigration lawyers can contact the National Customer Service Center for an adjunction.
Employment-Based Green Cards
Sponsoring an immigrant employee to come work for you can make that individual eligible for a green card. They need to go through the application process and still undergo a background check. In some instances, the employer may need to prove that no U.S. worker is qualified, available, or willing to take the job instead.
