Default H-1 visa

To whom may help me on this:

hi, this is gordon. I have a question about H-1 working visa. I hear numbers of things:

1. you have to have a master degree to get a H-1 visa to work in the U.S.

2. you have to be payed more then $60,000 from the company in order for
the goverment to issue you the H-1 otherwise , no H-1 for you.


Are the above two questions correct, please , anyone , who know any thing about H-1 , help me out as soon as possible, Thanks very much.

No ... The job for which the employer is petitioning for an H1B visa
must be a "specialty occupation" and generally requires at least a
relevent bachelors degree or equivalent. (>12 years related experience
is considered equivalent).

No ... The job must be at least at the salary of the prevailing wage in
the area you're working for similar jobs. This is determined by a
Labour Condition assessment and filing an Attestation.

No, minimum requirement is Bachelor degree

No. It depends on the region, where you will work. The Employer has to pay you the prevailing wage (the usual wage for THIS Job in THIS region, that he would also pay to americans in the same position). There are webpages with lists of prevailing wages for certain jobs and regions. But I don't know them. You can be sure, that the prevailing wage will be higher in New York than in a little town somewhere in Midwest.
