The H-1B visa is a very popular category for foreign nationals who will be employed in the United States in a “specialty occupation,” perform services under a Department of Defense-administered project, or work as a fashion model of distinguished merit and ability. There are a limited number of H-1B visas allocated each federal fiscal year, which runs October 1 to September 30. Specialty Workers will be allowed a maximum initial stay of three years. A request for extension of stay may be granted for up to three years. There is a six year maximum stay on H-1B with a limited exception depending upon your employment based permanent resident status processing. Contact us to review your eligibility for an H-1B Visa.
