The H-1B is a non-immigrant classification used by an employer offering a position in a specialty occupation to an employee who will be temporarily employed for up to six years in duration.
If your hiring unit has offered to sponsor you for H-1B visa status, they will reach out to our office to initiate the process. In the meantime, you can familiarize yourself with the process and timeline.
It is your responsibility to maintain your H-1B status. Make sure to communicate with OIS in advance any potential changes to your employment. If you have any questions, it is important to reach out to us in advance of taking action.
If you are leaving your position at UT Health San Antonio, whether voluntarily or involuntarily, make sure to notify our office in advance to discuss your options.
