H-1B Visa is issued to aliens coming here temporarily to perform services in a ‘specialty occupation’ or as a fashion model who has national or international acclaim.  A ‘specialty occupation’ requires theoretical and practical application of a body of specialized knowledge.  The educational requirement specifies that the alien possess at least a bachelor's degree or its equivalent.  Examples of specialty occupations include: architects, engineers, professors, researchers, computer programmers and other professionals.   The H-1B status may be approved initially for a period of up to three years and may be renewed for up to another three years. Thus, the duration of an H-1B worker's stay in the United States can reach a maximum of 6 years

There is a quota of 65,000 H-1B visas per annum and as many as 20,000 additional H-1B slots are available to graduates of U.S. Master’s degree (or higher) programs.
