H1B Work Visa General Information: The H1B Visa enables professionals in "Specialty Occupations" to make a valuable contribution to the American economy. A maximum of 65,000 H1B Visas are issued every year. The H1B Visa is issued for up to three years but may be extended. This provides a maximum stay of six years. The H1B Visa holder can apply for a Green Card if a company wants to sponsor his/her application.

H1B Work Visa Eligibility Requirements: The H1B Non-Immigrant Work Visa may be issued to applicants seeking temporary work in a "Specialty Occupation" which requires the skills of a professional. "Specialty Occupations" include e.g. accounting, computer analysts, programmers, database administrators, web designers, engineers, financial analysts, doctors, nurses, scientists, architects and lawyers. The petitions are submitted by employers based on their need for the non-U.S.-resident employee.
