Employment visas may be required by an employer if you are not a citizen of the Country you want to work in. You need to apply the same rigor to your research about work visas and immigration law in the Country you want to work in.

Check out MyVisaJobs.com for their Searchable Visa Sponsor Database.

H1B Visa Information

On an H1-B visa, U.S. employers can hire foreign professional employees who have at least a four-year college degree (or the equivalent), and will work in a position requiring a college degree. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) is authorized to issue 85,000 H1-B work visas each year, and each year U.S. employers use all available H1-Bs.

The USCIS has a H1-B Employer Data Hub.

An H1-B visa is valid initially for up to three years and can be extended an additional three years for a total of six years, regardless of the number of employers during that time. Extensions beyond six years are available in limited circumstances.
