H-1B Amendments FAQ

Posted on Jan 18, 2023 by Chris Prescott

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. Once approved for an H-1B the worker must work in accordance with the original terms and conditions as per the originally filed petition. If there is a material change to the original terms and conditions of employment the employer is required to file an H-1B amendment with USCIS. In Part 3 of the H-1B video series Chris Prescott, PLG Partner discusses the common scenarios which require an H-1B amendment to be filed.
