H-1B Temporary (Nonimmigrant) Workers

H-1B Temporary worker visas are for persons who want to enter the United States for employment lasting a fixed period of time. H-1B visas are good for 3 years but can be extended to 6 years. The H-1B visa requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The US H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows US companies to employ graduate level workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise in specialized fields such as in IT, finance, accounting, architecture, engineering, mathematics, science, medicine, etc. The following Margaret W. Wong and Associates client success stories are just a few examples of those who have obtained their H-1B Temporary visas. If this fits your situation – Contact us today!
