The application process for an H-1B1 visa typically involves the following steps:
Obtain a job offer from a U.S. employer in a specialty occupation.
The employer files a Labor Condition Application (LCA) with the U.S. Department of Labor.
The employer files an H-1B1 visa petition (Form I-129) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
Once the petition is approved, the applicant applies for the H-1B1 visa at the U.S. embassy or consulate in their home country.
