H-1B1 for Professionals from Chile & Singapore


The H-1B1 nonimmigrant visa is a readily available work visa created by treaty for Singaporean and Chilean professionals.


The requirements for the H-1B1 visa are comparable to the H-1B visa, except without an annual lottery and allowing for applicants to skip USCIS. Specifically, an Singaporean or Chilean professional must show that they have a job offer in the United States in an occupation that typically requires a Bachelor’s degree or higher in a specific area.

An experienced business immigration attorney may confirm whether the U.S. employment and prospective employee appear to qualify.

Application Procedure

  • Preparation and Filing of Labor Condition Application (LCA) with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) by U.S. employer, which also must maintain a “Public Access File” and post a Notice of Filing at the worksite.
  • In-Person Application by Singaporean or Chilean citizen at a U.S. Consulate Abroad
