American companies and business owners are allowed under U.S immigration law to hire foreign workers and employees if they are unable to find qualified and ready-to-work employees in the United States. At Joseph & Hall, P.C., we have experienced immigration lawyers who help clients in the Denver metro area effectively and successfully navigate the complex immigration system when trying to secure employment-based immigration visas.
The H1B visa is a temporary non-immigrant visa for foreign nationals who wish to come and work in the United States in what is known as a “specialty occupation.” Foreign nationals already in the country with another valid immigration status can also have their visa changed to H1B, provided they meet the qualifications, which are as follows:

Once these requirements are met, then the first thing that happens is the American employer files a petition to approve the employment. The foreign worker needs to apply for the H1B visa at a U.S. consulate in their native country.
