The H1B visa is a non-immigrant visa for speciality jobs. In order to qualify for this visa, you must have a bachelor's degree or equivalent from either a U.S. institution or a school in your home country. You must have an employer sponsor you for this visa type. In order for your employer to be eligible they must prove there is a lack of qualified U.S. applicants for the same role. This is a very high demand visa. There is a lottery each year for H1B applicants and you must be selected in the lottery in order to officially apply for the H1B visa. Typically only about one third of the entrants in the lottery are selected.
Common Issues H1B Visa Applicants Have:
Being elected in the lottery
Explaining your speciality in your field
Overcoming any discrepancies in your visa history
INSIGHTS FROM FORMER VISA OFFICER ON H1B VISA:
Overall, the chances of getting approved at the visa interview are relatively high if you make it to this stage of the process. But just because you make it to the visa interview, doesn’t mean you don’t need to be well prepared. One thing we see behind the window for H1B applicants is applicants not being able to adequately talk about their new position and why they are qualified for it.
