H-1B visas are for individuals who work in fields that require exceptional knowledge. They must have a bachelor’s degree in the specified field or a minimum of it. The US H-1B visa allows US companies to hire graduate-level workers in specialties such as IT, finance, and accounting. The H-1B visa can be used for professional-level jobs that require a bachelor’s or higher degree. A person who does not hold a bachelor’s degree may be able to show that they have the equivalent degree through work experience or other qualifications.
