- Bachelor’s or higher degree or its equivalent is normally the minimum entry requirement for the position

- The employer normally requires a degree or its equivalent for the position
- The nature of the specific duties is so specialized and complex that the knowledge required to perform the duties is usually associated with the attainment of a bachelor’s or higher degree.
The US perspective employer must first file a Labor Certification Application(“LCA”) with the U.S. Department of Labor for the position that the H-1B petition will be filed for.
