How do I know whether my job is a “specialty occupation”?
While some occupations are clearly “specialty occupations” as defined by laws and regulations, others are not so clear and the USCIS will make a decision on a case-by-case basis. For some professions such as computer programmer, general manager, librarian, consultant, designer, etc., determination of “specialty occupation” is an extremely complicated process and many factors should be considered. We suggest that H-1B petitioners or beneficiaries consult with an experienced immigration attorney regarding their specific cases.
