H-1B1 Visa for Chilean and Singaporean Citizens

H-1B1 Visa Attorney in San Jose

For Chilean and Singaporean Citizens

The U.S. Chile Free Trade Agreement and the U.S. Singapore Free Trade Agreement creates an H-1B1 visa for citizens from Chile and Singapore. The agreement requires the USCIS to reserve exempt 1,400 H-1B visas for Chile and 5,400 visas for Singapore from the 65,000 H-1B visa cap. The intended recipient of the H-1B1 visa must:

  1. Be a citizen of Singapore or Chile
  2. Have a valid job offer from a U.S. company to be employed in a specialty job occupation
  3. Have a Certified LCA filed under the H-1B1 Chile or Singapore category

The Applicant does not need to file the H-1B1 application with the USCIS in the U.S. Instead, the Applicant may directly apply at the U.S. Consulate overseas for the H-1B1 visa.

How Long is the Visa Valid for?

The H-1B1 visa is valid for one year and extensions are granted in one-year increments. Unlike the H-1B, there is no 6-year limitation for the H-1B1. Any unused visas from the Chilean and Singapore quota become part of the regular H-1B visa quota.
