What to Know about H-1B Visas
With an H-1B visa, a skilled professional can stay in the United States
for three years and extend their stay for up to six years. There are a
limited number of H-1B visas distributed each year and it is therefore
imperative to speak with a qualified Wakefield immigration attorney to
ensure your H-1B petition is filed with USCIS in a timely manner. Applications
for new employment can only be submitted for the first five business days
If you change employers, a portability petition must be filed with USCIS.
An H-1B is a dual intent visa, meaning you may seek permanent residency
via employment. Some employers are cap exempt, such as institutions of
higher education, non-profit entities that are related to or affiliated
with higher education, a nonprofit research organization, or a governmental
research organization. This allows for a petitioning employer to file
for an H-1B any time.
TN Visa for Canadian & Mexican Residents
A TN visa is only available for citizens of Canada and Mexico. Obtaining
one is not a lengthy process and it is fairly easy to get the TN visa
stamp needed to live and work in the United States. The career fields
that can lead to a TN visa are more limited than those that can help you
obtain an H-1B visa. There are specific approved occupations (via the
NAFTA treaty) and most are bachelor degree level jobs.
The best option for a professional looking to live and work here may depend on:
- The person’s intent
- The length of time he or she wishes to stay
- The exact professional field
