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:
- Be a citizen of Singapore or Chile
- Have a valid job offer from a U.S. company to be employed in a specialty
- 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.
