FAQ of the Week
Question: How does the H-1B visa quota criteria work?


Each October 1st, the USCIS makes available a certain number of H-1B visas for the next 12 months.

The Quota for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 (October 1st, 2006 to September 30th, 2007) is 65,000. There is also a quota of 20,000 for US Master Degree Holders, effectively making the quota 85,000.

The earliest you can apply for the H-1B Visa is 6 months before the requested start date. You may file on or after 4/1/06 for a 10/1/06 start date.

H-1B visa holders are not subject to the quota when applying for a transfer to another company or an extension with the same company.

Tip of the Week
Tip: If you are on a H-1B Visa, and you are moving to a new work location in a different state, then make sure that your employer has got a LCA for you, to work in the new location.
Definition of the Week
Specialty Occupation:  Requires the theoretical and practical application of a body of specialized knowledge and a bachelor's degree or the equivalent in the specific specialty (e.g., sciences, medicine and health care, education, biotechnology, and business specialties, etc). Current laws limit the number of foreign workers who may be issued a visa or otherwise be provided H-1B status to 65,000.
Link of the Week
Hire Americans First Members of Hire Americans First allege that employment-based visas, under current statutes, constitute undue and unreasonable government interference in their liberty and right to practice in their professions. This irreparably harms both seasoned professionals and new U.S. graduates who have heavily invested in their educations and are trying to break into the field.

Q&A: H-1B Specialized Skill

Do H-1B workers have to have a specialized skill?


No, they only have to have a BS degree in math, science, or engineering. There is no such thing as a skills test, nor standard, nor GPA requirement. An H-1B worker can have a D average from the worst college in the world.
