Houston H-1B Visa Attorney
Experienced Business Immigration Counsel
The H-1B visa is for non-citizens who wish to come to the United States to work in a specialized occupation. Employment visas allow non-citizens to live and work in the country for a limited time. If your H-1B visa is granted, you can work in the U.S. for up to three years. While the H-1B visa is not a path to permanent residency, it is a perfect option for skilled workers in specialized fields. The knowledgeable Houston immigration attorneys at Toppins Law Firm, P.C. can help you determine if the H-1B visa is right for you.
Call our trusted legal team at 713-621-8588 today to discuss your immigration needs.
H-1B Visa Requirements
- A BACHELOR’S DEGREE OR EQUIVALENT WORK EXPERIENCE
- A JOB IN A RELATED, SPECIALIZED FILED (I.E., ENGINEERING AND BUSINESS)
- A SALARY THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO OR ABOVE THE PREVAILING WAGE
In addition to these general requirements, you must also be available to begin work at the time your application is filed and be able to prove that you meet these above requirements.
Caps on H-1B Visas and the Application Process
The United States allows 65,000 H-1B visas each year. While this may seem like a fair amount, this cap is typically reached before six months have passed. Competition for this visa is steep, and many applicants lose valuable time trying to sort through the application process without assistance. If you do not act quickly, you may miss your opportunity.
