An H-1B is a non-immigrant visa that allows a foreign national to come to the U.S. and work on a temporary basis. It’s one of the most commonly used visas for companies looking to hire talent from abroad. An H-1B can only be filed for someone who can demonstrate that they will work in a position that requires the application of specialized knowledge and a position where the typical requirement is at least a U.S. Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a specific field.
