An H-1B1 Visa in Wisconsin | What You Should Know

h-1b1 visa wisconsin

The H-1B1 visa is a nonimmigrant visa available to citizens of Chile and Singapore. Under the U.S.-Chile and U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreements, employers in the United States may employ individuals in specialty occupations, for a specified period of time. The number of H-1B1 visas can’t exceed 1,400 for Chile, or 5,400 for Singapore in any given year, but this limit is set aside from the overall H-1B cap. The yearly cap of H-1B1 visas, as of the posting of this blog post, has never been filled. If you are a Chilean or Singaporean national who has been offered a specialized occupation in the United States, please read on, then contact an experienced work authorization permit lawyer in Milwaukee, WI to learn what you should know about an H-1B1 visa in Wisconsin.

Who can obtain an H-1B1 visa in Wisconsin?

Much like the H-1B visa, the H-1B1 visa is available to professionals working within specific “specialty occupations” that require theoretical and practical applications of specialized knowledge. In light of that, H-1B1 visas are available to those who work in the following specialty occupations, among others:

  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Physical and social sciences
  • Medicine
  • Education
  • Business specialties
  • Accounting
  • Law
  • Theology
  • Arts
  • Marketing
  • Media
