An H-1B temporary worker visa is a “non-immigrant” visa that professionals can obtain to fill “specialty occupation” positions if approved by a qualified employer. A “specialty occupation” is defined as requiring the theoretical and practical use of highly specialized skills or knowledge and requiring a bachelor’s degree, its equivalent, or a higher degree.
In addition to several specific requirements, in order to qualify for a H-1B temporary worker visa, prospective employees must have obtained a bachelor’s degree, higher degree, or foreign degree that is equivalent to a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. in the specialty. Qualified employers include businesses with a bona fide job offer and the ability to pay the position’s wages.
