H1B VISA – FAQ ( FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS )

The primary criterion for a person’s eligibility for an H1B visa is to have a valid job offer from a US Employer, in a speciality occupation that requires specialized knowledge and the minimum of a bachelor’s degree in that specific speciality. The beneficiary should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in the specific speciality.

For a visa holder to stay in status, he has to be continuously employed with the employer and should be engaged in a speciality occupation. The issuance of an H1B visa is given initially for three years.

USCIS issues the visa initially for three years, and your employer can request an extension for three more years. The person has to be continuously employed by the employer to stay in status and leave the country otherwise.
