About H1B Visas
Commonly called the "work visa", H-1B is a nonimmigrant classification for temporary employment in a specialty occupation. A specialty occupation requires specialized knowledge along with at least a bachelor's degree. Students cannot apply for H-1B status themselves and WWU doesn't get involved in the process. You must find a job with an employer who will sponsor you for the H-1B and the employer must initiate the application process on your behalf.
More information can be found at some of these sites:
- US Department of Labor General information
- U.S. Department of Labor database of employers who have requested H1B Visas.
- US Citizenship and Immmigration Service (USICIS)
- USICIS Legal Advice
