H1B Visa 2013 Program;
The H1B 2013 Visa will again be the primary avenue for international students and/or highly-skilled professionals from other countries to live and work in the U.S. The H1B visa is the 'most wanted' work permit / visa that also makes it possible for foreign nationals to apply for a green card or permanent resident status. The H1B visa allows the applicant's spouse and children to accompany him/her and to live in America.
In order to be eligible for an H1B for 2013, the candidate must meet the H1B qualification requirements and must be employed in a "specialty H1B occupation" or a field requiring a high level of specialized knowledge.
To apply for an H1B visa, the applicant must obtain an H1B sponsorship employment offer from a U.S.-based employer, who is willing to sponsor the applicant to work in the USA, and apply / file for their H1B visa.
