The H-1B work visa is a non-immigrant and employer-sponsored visa which means that your employer must give you a position and petition the USCIS for your H-1B visa.
It enables US companies to hire graduate-level employees in specialty occupations that require theoretical or professional knowledge in specialized fields such as the following:
The H-1B visa for specialty occupations can be used for any specialized level job that usually requires a bachelor’s degree or higher. You may be able to demonstrate degree equivalence by work experience and/or other credentials if you do not have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
For petitioning, the employer can request such documents from the foreign worker. A standard sample of the requirements for an H-1B petition is as follows:
The H-1B visa and status are valid for three years at a time and can be renewed for another three years. When the full duration of stay expires, the foreign worker must either leave the United States or receive a new status (such as an F-1 student or O-1 “extraordinary ability” worker).
