Renewing H-IB work visas just got more complex

In the last 10 years or so, millions of people from other countries have received the opportunity to work in the United States, and many of them may reside here in New Orleans. Approximately 2.5 million of them did so by obtaining H-1B work visas. These visas last for approximately three years with a total of six years of potential extensions.

There are many work visas. Do you know which one you need?

Whether you are job hunting or a New Orleans company hunting for the perfect employee to fill a position, the search can be arduous and challenging under the best of circumstances. If you are not a citizen of the United States, or your favorite candidate is not a U.S. citizen, your pursuit may become even more of a challenge. Not only will it be necessary to go through the process of obtaining a visa, but knowing which of the many work visas best fits your situation may be complex.
