Documents Required for H-1B Visa Application

. Here’s a breakdown of the key documents needed for the H-1B visa application process:


Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker

This is the primary form used to petition for an H-1B visa on behalf of a foreign worker. Your employer (petitioner) will need to complete and file this form with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). travels, and family gatherings.

Labor Condition Application (LCA)

Before filing the H-1B petition, your employer must obtain an approved LCA from the Department of Labor (DOL). The LCA certifies that your employment will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers in similar positions.
Tax Returns: Recent tax returns help establish financial stability and the ability to meet sponsorship obligations.

Supporting Letter from Employer

Your employer must provide a detailed letter outlining the terms and conditions of your employment, including job title, duties, salary, and duration of employment. This letter serves as evidence of the job offer and is typically included with the H-1B petition.
Divorce or Death Certificates: If applicable, provide documentation for previous marriages, such as divorce or death certificates.

Educational Credentials

You will need to provide evidence of your educational qualifications, such as transcripts, diplomas, or degree certificates. If your degree was obtained from a foreign institution, you may need to provide a credential evaluation report to demonstrate its equivalency to a U.S. degree.

Resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV)

A current resume or CV detailing your work experience, skills, and relevant qualifications is typically required as part of the H-1B petition package.

Valid Passport

You must have a valid passport that remains valid for the duration of your intended stay in the United States.


Recent passport-sized photographs meeting USCIS specifications are required for your H-1B visa application.

Form I-94, Arrival/Departure Record

If you are already in the United States, you will need to provide a copy of your most recent Form I-94, which indicates your current immigration status and authorized period of stay.

Additional Supporting Documents

Depending on the specifics of your case, additional documentation may be required, such as evidence of specialized skills or certifications, employment contracts, and proof of licensure (if applicable).
