When can I apply for the H1B work visa?
If you are looking to apply for an H1B work visa for the United States, you’ve come to the right place! The H1B work visa is a special type of work visa that allows applicants to work in specialty occupations in the United States so long as they meet the requirements and have a job offer from an employer in the United States.
However, the issue is that the H1B work visa is a capped visa and only a certain amount of them are available every year. The applications open once per year, and they go extremely fast, sometimes in just a few days. The applications for the H1B work visa for the fiscal 2014 year opened in April and are already full.
The H1B work visa applications for next year will likely open in the spring, so it’s best to start working on getting everything you need now.
Applying for an H1B work visa for the United States
When you apply for an H1B work visa, you need to make sure that you have a job offer from a United States employer, that the job is in a specialty occupation, that you have the relevant skills, education and background for that occupation and that you have the proper supporting documents and paperwork you need.
