H-1B Work Visa for Teachers

About the H-1B Visa

The H-1B program allows companies in the United States to temporarily employ foreign workers in occupations that require the theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge and a bachelor’s degree or higher in the specific specialty, or its equivalent. H-1B specialty occupations may include fields such as science, engineering, information technology and teaching.

Unlike other employers, eligible schools can qualify for Cap Exemption.  This means that these schools can petition for H-1B teacher employees without the risk of failing the lottery.  This also makes it possible for the teachers to come into the US, before the start of the school year, unlike other H-1B visa holders, who are allowed to enter the US from October.  This makes the H-1B visa a favorable option for schools wanting to fill vacancies with highly qualified teachers. 

Teachers Council provides consultation, guidance, and paralegal support services for the H-1B visa for teachers.

Our services include:

• Initial Applications to USCIS
• Renewals and Extensions
• Change of Employer
• Visa Transfers from F-1, B-1/2, and others
