About the H1B Visa

The H1B visa program is a non-immigrant visa category issued by the United States to allow American companies to temporarily employ foreign workers in specialized occupations that demand advanced technical knowledge. It remains one of the primary means by which American firms can attract global talent in fields such as information technology, engineering, medicine, and more. The H1B visa approval process is stringent, requiring companies to demonstrate the necessity of hiring foreign workers due to a lack of qualified candidates within the US.
