The Seven Types of H Visas


     The H category of visa is perhaps best known for the H-1B, which is available to foreign professionals and certain fashion models.  However, there are six other visas in this category.  The H-1B1 is for fast track H-1Bs, known as such because they are reserved for nationals of Chile and Singapore.  The U.S. entered into Fast Track Trade legislation with both these countries.
     The H-1C is for professional nurses working in health professional shortage areas.  Of course a nurse with a bachelor's degree may also apply for an H-1B in any city if she can prove that the minimum requirement for the position is a bachelor's degree. The H-2A is available for temporary agricultural workers and the H-2B is for other workers provided that U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents are unavailable.  The H-3 category is available for trainees who cannot obtain such training in their home country.  Finally, accompanying family members -- meaning spouse and children -- of persons with any H visa obtain an H-4.
     This is just one of the visas I must know for the Board Certification exam.  Again, wish me luck.
