The H-1B visa is for qualified workers wanting to enter the U.S. for a limited time in order to work. This visa is designed for migrants who already have a prospective employer in the U.S. who can file some necessary forms on the worker’s behalf. The H-1B visa has strict guidelines about that you, the applicant and your prospective job must fit in order to be eligible for the H-1b visa.
Employees hope to come to the U.S. may be eligible to use the H1-B. However, the majority of people will qualify as immigrant employees under the H1-B. You may be eligible for an H-1B based on your own professional skills or on the necessity of the job you will be filling.
