HIB transfer - new job with very different job/career


Recommended Posts


My husband is considering a career change from Marketing to Software Quality testing.

He has a Bachelors in Industrial Engineering and a MBA in Finance.

When he has a job offer for software testing and when we apply for H1 transfer,

Could the -The lack of similar (software) education backgroud and lack of experience in software field be a cause for rejection when we apply for H1 transfer

Thank you in advance.

Generally, the H1B visa classification has two requirements. First, the position offered must be in a specialty occupation which requires a minimum of a bachelor's degree in a relevant field of study as the minimum requirement for entry into the position. Second, the beneficiary must be qualified for the position by possessing the required educational and/or experience background. Please schedule a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney to discuss the specific facts relating to your husband's case and to determine whether he may be qualified for a H1B visa in the offered position.
