H-1B Visa. # Chile-Singapore, # Specialized Occupation, # Merit Models-Distinguished Ability.

There are two types of visas: immigrant and non-immigrant. Non-immigrant visas are obtained outside the United States, at a consulate or American embassy. Individuals with a current I-94 can change or extend their status in the United States.

People who are applying for an H-1B visa have to come to work in a specialty occupation and have specialized knowledge regarding the occupation. Teachers are an example of a specialty occupation. Industry requirements for K-12 teachers in the United States include having a bachelor's degree and specialized education/training. An applicant for an H-1B must comply with those two requirements, among others, to be eligible for an H-1B.

The list of reasons why you can be denied an H-1B or H-1B1 visa is long and this example assumes that the person and the organization both meet all other legal requirements. Attorney Maria M. Cordon can help you determine if you are eligible, help you prove the facts, and show how your facts meet the legal eligibility requirements.
