H1B Visa Status

H1B visa allows foreign nationalities to live and work in the United States for a specific period of time. The H1B visas are issued for a maximum duration of six years and it can be extended for another three years by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If the H1B Visa holder is in the process of applying for a green card or employment-based permanent residence, the validity of the H1B Visa could be extended. Under the H1B Visa, the applicant must possess a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience to be eligible for the application process. The process also requires the employers to obtain a Labor Condition Application (LCA) from the US Depart of Labor to carry out the H1B petition with the USCIS. The H1B policies also allow the existing visa holders to transition from one employer to another employer.
