Do you have an employment offer from a US-based employer? An H-1B Visa grants you temporary residence in the US to work in a specialty occupation. The specialty occupation could be services of exceptional merit, an international fashion model, cooperative research, etc. The employer must demonstrate a clear employer-employee relationship.
An H-1B visa could be your ticket to building a life in the US. It is an employment-based visa offered to skilled foreign workers with specialized skills who can fill the positions for which US workers are not available.
