Working Legally In The United States With An H1b Visa.An H1B classification used to be a relatively easy and straightforward mechanism for employers to get authorization to employ foreign professionals. However, the processing has become much more complicated in the recent years, in order to protect U.S. workers. United States Government allows a certain number of professionals with a Bachelor Degree or higher to enter and work in this Country each fiscal year if they can secure an employment in the United States. A fiscal year for the INS (Immigration and Naturalization Services) begins on September 1st of each year. For the years 2001, 2002 and 2003 the quota has been set high to allow 195,000 foreign professionals to obtain H1B visas per fiscal year. This number will drop to only 65,000 in each succeeding year (8 USC section 1184)
