Legal Answers
Q. Is H-1B visa only about STEM people? Can't a person in communications/ PR get it?
A: The H1B is for people who wish to perform services in a "specialty occupation." It is not just for occupations in STEM.
Q. Can a person on H1b accept an consulting/advisory role for other company that is not their H1b sponsor.
A: The H1B visa is employer-specific. Working for a different company is not permitted without another approved petition.
