H-1B temporary worker status is designated for individuals coming temporarily to the U. S. to work in a specialty occupation. The H-1B process is more complex than other immigration status and the processing time is long and inflexible. (There is no way to expedite of the Department of Labor portion.) Scholars should allow at least 8 months for the entire process including the Department of Labor (DOL) and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) processes.
Discuss with the hiring department whether they support sponsoring you in H-1B status.
