About the H1-B Program
The H1B Professional Visa application allows United States employers and corporations to employ foreign workers on a temporary basis specifically in designated “specialty occupations.” Those seeking to obtain an H1B Professional Visa often work in highly specialized fields, such as engineering, research institutions, niche medical positions and the academia. And while there are many definitions of these specialty occupations, one important requirement is education – the applicant must have a four year degree or equivalent bachelor’s diploma. If the applicant does not have a four year bachelor degree, he or she will often have a higher level of experience that proves his or her ability to do the job.
Interestingly, the US government currently imposes a limit on the number of aliens who may be issued H-1B visas each year. Those working for universities and non-profit research facilities are generally excluded from this cap. Also, guidelines are in place which protect workers and ensure they are fairly compensated. For instance, employers must ensure that wages being offered to H-1B recipients are at least equal to the wages being paid to other workers with similar qualifications in the same job – or pay the prevailing wage for the occupation in their area.
