Jobs that require an H-1B visa

Working in the United States as a residence of another country requires documentation. You cannot simply enter the country and expect to be allowed in to work a job, even if it is legitimate employment in New Orleans, Louisiana. Let’s take a look at some of the jobs that might require, or have typically required, an H-1B visa in order for the subject to hold employment in the United States.

The H-1B visa is typically for people who are working in tech-related jobs. But, that doesn’t mean someone can’t acquire this visa for another type of job in Louisiana. Many of the jobs that require this visa to work in the country also require a degree in the same field of study. You need to check the job posting thoroughly to see what type of requirements are needed, including a degree to make sure you qualify for the position.

The following are just some jobs that might require an H-1B visa to work in the United States:

  • Economists
  • Administrators of databases
  • Architects
  • Civil engineers
  • Surveyors
  • Biologists
  • Chemists
  • Therapists
  • Teachers
  • Software engineers
  • Statisticians
  • Artists
  • Graphic designers
  • Mechanical engineers

The company that is in need of employees from other countries is required by law to sponsor the visas for the employees they hire. Visas can be denied. They can also be applied for multiple times. Just be sure you know the process and are qualified for the job for which you are applying.

Acquiring an H-1B visa to work in the United States is a straightforward procedure. It can, however, become difficult to acquire if there are issues with your background. That’s why it’s always best to apply for the visa and then appeal if you are denied.
