Employment Visa Sponsorship

The H1B employment visa system is very important for skilled workers. This immigrant visa classification allows a non-U.S. citizen to work in the United States on a temporary basis. Employers wanting to hire highly skilled workers in engineering, computer programming, and other science fields from outside the United States often apply for an H1B visa on behalf of prospective employees. This visa category also applies to workers with non-scientific specialized knowledge and skills.

Spouse Visa AtlantaRequirements of an H1B Visa

There are several requirements identified by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency in order for an H1B employment visa to be obtained. These requirements include a bachelor’s degree (or higher) that is equivalent to the minumum requirements for a specific job, and a Labor Condition Application (LCA) must be provided by the employer.

Application Process for an H1B Visa

The application process for an H1B visa is quite extensive. For quality assurance and assistance through the process, a qualified immigration lawyer is often quite helpful in assisting both the employer and employee. Atlanta immigration attorneys Brownstein & Nguyen have over 25 years of experience representing clients in immigration and visa cases.

Spouses of H1B Visa Holders

Previously, spouses and minor children of an H1B employee were permitted to live in and study in the United States with an H-4 status, but they were not able to work. A recent change will allow some spouses of H1B visas to now seek employment.
