- You are required to establish you are coming to the U.S on a temporary basis and that you will depart the U.S. once your work assignment is complete.
- You may have to fulfill certain health and character requirements.
There are 5,400 H1-B1 visas available for Singaporeans and 1,400 available for Chileans. It is exempt from the H-1B anti-fraud police, but there are other filing fees. Premium processing is also not available for this type of visa.
What is a Specialty Occupation?
A specialty occupation requires theoretical and practical application in a specialized field. This typically requires at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent and transferable work experience. Examples of this type of occupation includes: engineering, mathematics, medicine, health, education, accounting, law and business specialties or the arts.
Related to the H1-B1 Visa, spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 may apply for the applicable derivative H4 visa. If admitted, these spouses and children are entitled to study in the U.S. However, they cannot undertake any employment without securing an appropriate work visa.
