H1-B Visas

Specialty Occupations

H-1B visas are available to foreign professionals who wish to perform services in a specialty occupation for a U.S. company for a specified period of time, as well as fashion models of distinguished merit or ability.

To qualify for an H-1B visa, the foreign national must have theoretical and practical knowledge within a specialized field, and a bachelor’s degree or higher relating to that field. Fashion models who can show distinguished merit or ability within their profession also qualify for H-1B visas. Certain professions, as well as foreign nationals who are seeking an H-1B2 DOD Researcher and Development Project Worker visa, may have additional requirements to meet as well.
