H-1B visas are one of the most popular and controversial visas used to hire foreign professionals. Because of their usefulness and limited availability, they are difficult to obtain. There is currently an annual cap of eighty-five thousand for new H-1B visas, and within days of the start of the filing season in April each year, the cap is reached. It is time to explore other options. Business immigration lawyer, author and speaker, Giselle Carson provides a practical guide to lesser-known work visas that could get you just as far as the H-1B visa-as well as creative exemptions to the H-1B cap. She shows you different categories of work authorization and the requirements for each in a straightforward, matter-of-fact style. She also provides insider tips and answers some of the most common questions about work authorization, visas, and immigration law. Beyond the H-1B is not intended to be a comprehensive legal guide to US immigration. Instead, the book serves as a general resource that can broaden your perspective and surprise you with the different options available to you and your employees.
