First, the H-1B visa is a temporary workers’ visa for those who have a job offer in the USA. The USA employer must offer a job and apply for the H-1B visa petition of the prospective employee with the US Immigration authorities. Once approved, this petition works as the work permit for the employee who can stay and work in the USA on a non-immigrant status.
This program has been in existence since 1990 and has helped US employers to fulfill their labor shortages by getting highly skilled employees from other nations.

It requires theoretical as well as practical knowledge of the concepts involved with the work.
