H-1B Nonimmigrant Visa Category

  • Persons with equivalent foreign degrees;
  • Persons fully licensed to practice their profession;
  • Persons with a combination of education, specialized training and experience. For each year of university that a foreign national lacks, he/she must demonstrate at least three years of experience in the specialty.

The H-1B Process

  • The employer will pay the required wage, which is the greater of the prevailing wage or the actual wage paid to other employees in the same position;
  • The employment of H-1B workers will not adversely affect the working conditions of US workers;
  • When the LCA was filed, there was no strike, lockout or other work stoppage because of a labor dispute; and
  • The H-1B worker will be given a copy of the LCA and the employer has notified the bargaining representative if the job is unionized, or if not, has posted a notice in a conspicuous place that an LCA was filed.
