The deadline for applying for the 2014 H1B work visa is fast approaching. The earliest starting work date for the applications that will begun being accepted on April 1st, 2013
The qualifications needed for an H1B work visa for the United States are strict, but if you meet them it can be a great opportunity.
To obtain this visa, you must have a job offer in the United States that will pay you the prevailing wage, and this job offer must be for a specialty occupation. A specialty occupation is one that requires a high level of education, usually a bachelor’s degree or higher. These visa applications also require that you have the correct background and experience required for the job, and that anywhere this job would be offered, the same high level of education and expertise would be required.
If you think you are eligible for the H1B work visa application, speak to a licensed immigration lawyer immediately to see if you are eligible and start the application process. It is vital that you apply as soon as possible because the cap is expected to fill up within a few days.
There are certain occupations that are NOT included in the cap of 65,000 visas, meaning that if you qualify you could obtain your visa anyway despite the cap. However, you must act as soon as possible to speak with a licensed immigration lawyer and find out it you are eligible for this visa.
