Join us on February 27, 2018 for an exciting presentation on one of the most popular and common visa types used today, the H-1B. Presented by two top attorneys at one of Manhattan’s leading law firms, the experts will discuss a range of common questions related to the H-1B, a nonimmigrant visa for foreign nationals who will be employed temporarily in a “specialty occupation” (one that requires a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience).
The seminar will cover why the H-1B may be a good fit for producers, directors, screenwriters, and other arts-related positions, and cases where it is not a good fit. It will be especially useful for graduating students on optional practical training.
Topics will include H-1B eligibility, how to apply, wage issues, important deadlines, the lottery system used to select H-1Bs, and the H-1B “cap” numbers that limit the number of H-1Bs issued each year. The seminar will also cover alternatives to the H-1B.
Whether you are an immigrant artist or art student, or an employer interested in sponsoring an artist, or an attorney advising your client on immigration-related issues, this presentation is sure to present useful and valuable information.
