Good Day!

I would like to ask couple of questions regarding HB1 visa .I am 21,5 years old and I am from Ukraine.This year i finished university in London(full time,Business management +finance) and in Ukraine(distance education science of law,because i was in London).After a huge research i found employer and he wants to hire me.He is opening new department that will sell his products in Ukraine and he needs me as the head of this department.(located in USA).To be short lets say that he needs me and he is totally fine with all my qualifications.However,I after a talk with couple of lawyers ,they said that it is impossible to provide me with HB1 visa because i dont have work experience (just part time summer inter).They said that i have to have at lest 3 years of experience as a senior manager in order to get this visa.What is your opinion and what would u suggest in order to resolve this situation.

The employer's lawyers will put together the filing. Have them research what is required for them to hire you.

Lawyers told that i need to have work experience in order to apply for HB1 visa,following this as i do NOT HAVE WORK EXPERIENCE I AM NOT ELIGIBLE FOR HB1.Is it true ?because from researched i've done there is no need for experience if you have bachelor degree.

There is a difference between technical requirements (which yes, a 4 year bachelors is the absolute minimum to qualify- a 3 year one would not be enough) and realistically getting the visa. With so many unemployed in the USA, it would be very, very difficult for the business to get Labor Certification to then get the visa for someone who only has a bachelors, and no Masters or work experience. So, I feel the lawyers are counselling your potential employer correctly.

What you may look into is joining the company as a Ukrainian employee, and then after a year or two, see about getting an L1 visa (intra-company transfer) to the USA.
