H-1B Visa - Specialty Workers Visa
The H-1B Visa is a nonimmigrant temporary working visa that allows foreign-born professionals and those in specialty occupations to work in the US for up to six (6) years within their professional field. The H-1B Visa is one of the most common work-related visas; it allows US companies to bring qualified foreign professionals to perform specific jobs requiring specialized skills. The following list contains some of those considered “specialty occupations”: architects, research analysts, chemists, chiropractors, engineers, computer professionals, lawyers, doctors, nurses, computer scientists, teachers, accountants, and certain fashion models. The Specialty Visa, or H-1B, is subject to annual quotas. At NeJame Law, an experienced Orlando H-1B Visa attorney from our Firm can assist you in your efforts, whether your needs are in Central Florida, the State of Florida or throughout the United States.

I would like to thank attorney Rosa Melia-Acevedo and Maria Marques for the wonderful work they do. They are helping my wife and I with our immigration case based on marriage. From the moment we retained their services, they have been always available to answer our questions. Their experience and knowledge helped us understand exactly which documents should be provided. This made the process so much easier. The same attention and high standard of service was previously provided to my wife with her H1B application. Her visa was approved without any request for further evidence. Thank you Rosa and Maria for everything you have done and continue to do for our family.
