The H-1B Visa is a nonimmigrant visa category for skilled foreign workers in occupations that require specialized practical or theoretical knowledge. It is an employment-based visa that requires the employer to petition their support for the applicant’s H-1B Visa. H-1B Visa holders are granted a US work visa that allows them to live and work in the US for the concerned employer for a specific period.
The H-1B Visa is one of the most popular nonimmigrant visa categories among foreign workers. It is especially the most desired visa category for applicants from countries like East India and China. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) recently introduced certain changes to this visa category that will affect the applicants hoping to apply for this visa in 2021.
