If you have prepared all H1B materials (also known as h1b签证材料), but you can’t get the H1B visa (also known as h1b签证), the F1 status will soon expire. In 2019, H1B will experience H1B reform (also known as h1b改革), the H1B denied rate will increase, H1B extension (h1b 延期) may be even harder to apply, so it is better to consult immigration lawyer (also known as 移民律师) before you apply. As long as you meet the corresponding requirements, you can consider converting to other status and stay in the US. Here are some types of visas for your reference:
(1) J-1 visa
Exchange Visitor Visa: A non-immigrant visa issued to the United States for approval by the US Department of State for the Exchange-Visitor Programs, allowing visiting scholars to conduct short-term studies, academic visits, or research work. All kinds of foreign exchanges, so it is also known as the J-1 visiting scholar visa. Most Chinese students meet the basic conditions of J-1. J-1 visa holders can work for employers who meet specific requirements.
2) O-1 visa Distinguished Talent Visa: A non-immigrant visa that holders typically have an extraordinary ability in science, art, education, business, sports, and film and television. As with the H-1B visa, the O-1 visa must also be submitted by the employer.Compared with the H-1B visa, the benefits of the O-1 visa (o1签证)are: no salary standards and academic qualifications; unlimited quotas; wider occupational areas; relatively loose requirements for employers; unlimited extensions; . 3) EB2/EB3: H-1B employees can ask employers to apply for a green card for them. If they have an advanced degree (master’s or doctoral degree) or an undergraduate + five-year related work experience, they can apply for EB2, employment based 2nd preference, commonly known as the second type of priority. If there is no advanced degree (Master or Ph.D.) and work experience is not met, it is necessary to apply for EB3, employment based 3rd preference. 4) Investment Immigration Green Card: EB-5Eb5 investment immigrants need to invest at least $500,000 in designated projects. If the economic conditions at home can be afforded, you can consider this approach. Currently EB-5 has a schedule. 5) Spouse visa:If your spouse holds a F-1, H-1, O-1, J-1 or L-1 visa, you can apply for the corresponding spouse visa: F-2, H-4, O-3, J-2 And L-2 and legally stay in the United States. 6) Relative immigration green card:If your spouse is a US citizen or green card holder, you can apply for a marriage green card.If other immediate family members are US citizens or green card holders, you can also apply for relative immigration. Seeing this, does it feel that life is full of hope? If the F1 status is about to expire and the H1B status is not necessarily available, you can consult your h1b lawyer or a professional immigration attorney.
