There are various types of temporary visas to consider: E-2, J-1, and the H-1B . Among the most versatile is the H-1B visa classification, which permits a foreign national to work in the United States for a temporary period. It is available for offers of employment that are in a specialty occupation. A person may hold H-1B status for a maximum of six years, and it may be issued in increments of up to three years by the USCIS.

Demand for H-1B Visas

While it might seem that historically high unemployment rates over the past few years has made questionable the debate over whether or not the United States really “needs” the highly skilled foreign workers who come here on H-1B temporary visas. But the demand for H-1B workers still far exceeds the current cap of only 65,000 new H-1B visas that can be issued each year. In fact, from fiscal year 1997 to 2011, employers exhausted this quota before the fiscal year was over (except from 2001 to 2003, when the ceiling was temporarily increased).

H-1B Visa Cap

The H-1B visa has an annual numerical limit, or cap, of 65,000 visas each fiscal year. The first 20,000 petitions filed on behalf of beneficiaries with a U.S. master’s degree or higher are exempt from the cap. Additionally, H-1B workers who are petitioned for or employed at an institution of higher education (or its affiliated or related nonprofit entities), a nonprofit research organization, or a government research organization are not subject to this numerical cap. A temporary visa (or non immigrant visa) allows a citizen of a country, other than the United States, to enter the United States to visit, study, or work. Our attorneys are able to obtain various types of temporary visas.

20 Different Types of Visas

More than 20 non immigrant types of visas exist for people that are looking to travel to the United States temporarily. The type of visa you need to acquire will be based on the purpose of your visit. When applying for a visa you will need to establish that you meet all necessary requirements in order to receive the visa category you are applying for. A consular officer at a U.S. Embassy or consulate will determine if you are eligible to receive a visa based on the information you provide and the laws governing visas. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) is the agency which grants (and sometimes denies) applications for green cards, U.S. citizenship, and applications for extensions and changes of temporary visa status.

Our San Diego Temporary Visa Lawyer Can Assist With:

 

  1. Temporary Visas: An E-2 investor visa used by a foreign national coming to the U.S. to direct and develop the operations of a business they are invested in or in the process of investing in.

 

  1. H1-B Visa Guide: H-1B visas are for persons to work in a professional capacity and have received offers of employment in the U.S., such as computer professionals, engineers, researchers, fashion models, etc.

 

  1. J Visas and Waivers: A J-1 visa is required for persons looking to remain temporarily in the U.S. during an “exchange program,” such as working as an au pair, a scientist, or during summer employment, etc.

 

  1. Extension of Stay: Used by a person in the U.S. with a temporary visa to extend his or her stay.

 

  1. Change of Status: Used to change the purpose of your stay while in the U.S.

As a number of studies make clear, the presence in a company of highly skilled foreign workers whose abilities and talents complement those of native-born workers actually creates new employment opportunities for American workers. Yet the arbitrary numerical limits placed on H-1Bs are incapable of responding to the changing demand for H-1B workers. This is unfortunate, given that the international competitiveness of the U.S. economy will continue to depend heavily on the contributions of H-1B professionals and other high-skilled workers from abroad for many decades to come.
