The H-1B is a visa category generally reserved for individuals in “specialty occupations,” and normally requires a bachelor’s degree at minimum. Positions in engineering, math, business and many technology fields fall under this “specialty occupation” umbrella. With 236,000 applications for only 85,000 visas in 2016, the importance of timing and processing procedures cannot be overstated. This article aims to explain the key issues involved in successfully navigating the H-1B petition process.
