    An H1B is a type of visa that pertains to non-immigrant status. Under the Immigration & Nationality Act, this type of visa allows employers in the United States to issue these visas on a temporary basis to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. The employer therefore applies for and ultimately holds the H1B visa for the employee and if the work is cut short or ends for some reason, then the individual needs to apply for a change of status, look for sponsorship through another employer, or be forced to leave the United States if neither option is viable. There are special rules about what makes a "specialty occupation" and the employer must properly and sufficiently fill out all the paperwork to gain an H1B visa for an employee. [ more ]

    -1B Beneficiary:
    The H-1B Beneficiary form is required by the United States immigration department. It allows for a United States company to employ a foreign individual. That person may be employed as such for up to six year. This is a non-immigrant type visa, which is being applied for. This form of visa is a faster option over a traditional United States Green Card. Most will first obtain this short-term solution and then apply for a Green Card if they plan to remain in the United States longer. The employer must petition for the entry of the employee into the country. The individual him or herself is unable to apply for the H-1B Beneficiary themselves. There are specific limits in place nationally on how many people may be admitted to the country in this regard. [ more ]

    -1B Specialty Occupation:
    The H-1B Specialty Occupation form of a visa is designed for those who are considered specialty occupation individuals or fashion models. As an H type of visa, the application must be submitted on the basis of the employer. A United States employer may petition for an individual to obtain this type of visa to allow that person to work within the United States for a period of up to six year. The individual may then work within the United States. Many employers use this form of visa rather than applying for a United States Green Card because the process is faster. It is possible to later upgrade your national standing to that of a Green Card citizen. [ more ]

    1B Sponsor:
    An H1B sponsor is an essential part of the visa process as it must come from an eligible employer. To gain an H1B visa an individual must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree and must possess the skills of the specialty occupation that a US employer is looking to fill. An H1B sponsor therefore is an employer based in the United States that is looking to bring on a foreign worker to fill such a position. As a sponsor they will be responsible for holding the individual's visa status and this will take place as long as the individual is an employee of theirs or as long as the visa is valid. For an individual to gain H1B visa status, they must have a sponsor in the form of a US employer who has a job opening to match the individual's skills and background. [ more ]

    -1C Visa:
    The H-1C Visa is one that is obtained for a non United States citizen who would like to work within the United States. This particular type of visa is used for nurses who wish to work within the United States professional health care system where there is a shortage of workers. Each year, the immigration department will issue only 500 H-1C Visas. The visa allows the individual to work within the country for a period of up to three years. This type of visa is unable to be extended. To quality, the nurse must be legally licensed or have a nursing degree within the United States and pass the necessary NCLEX RN examination. In some cases, it is difficult to obtain this type of visa, and therefore those who wish to gain entrance faster may wish to apply for a Green Card. [ more ]

For example, this may include those who are working in harvesting or those who are working in production. It may also be used for a limited amount of time when an employer can show that the foreign employee is necessary and that their position is temporarily needed only. In this former situation, the visa is limited to a position that will be limited to a period of less than a year. Those who gain the H-2A Visa will be able to work within the United States temporarily and enjoy the benefits of a regular employee. [ more ]

The employer must show proof that there are no unemployed US workers who are eligible and willing to do the work in place of bringing in a foreign worker.
