Applying for the 2014 H1B work visa for the United States

Applicants for this visa require a job offer from an employer in the United States. When speaking of the H1B work visa, the job offer can’t just be for any type of job. It has to be for a specialty occupation, which is a job that requires you to have a bachelor’s degree or higher.

The H1B work visa also requires that your job requires this level of education everywhere, not just with this particular employer.

In addition, your employer will have to file a Labour Condition Attestation and a prevailing wage determination, as they must pay you the prevailing wage for the geographic region.

You must also possess the proper educational background and experience to work in the job you have been offered.

If you feel you’re qualified for the H1B work visa, contact us immediately! We can help you apply, this year or for the next cycle. In addition, if you do not feel that you are qualified for this job we can help you explore your options in other types of United States work visas that are available.
