If you are lucky and have been accepted as a work immigrant into the United States under the H1-B 3 year work visa program, it may help you get a green card at a later date. You will still have quite a bit of documentation to do before your application is finally approved. There are normally only 65,000 visas issued annually and this cap is often reached in the first six months of the year. Businesses in the U.S. use this visa program so that they can employ overseas workers in occupations that need specialized knowledge to undertake a job. Examples of people who normally fall in this category are engineers, scientists and computer programmers.
Once you have been accepted you will have to prove you are eligible. That means that if you are from a non-English speaking country you will have to contact a company that provides certified translation services for immigration into the U.S. All your degree certificates will have to be translated into English in a manner which will be approved by the USCIS.
As soon as you have selected a suitable certified translation services for immigration you will have to send photocopies of your educational qualifications to the translator who will translate them into English. The translator, if he or she is not familiar with the USCIS requirements, will have to be reminded that a signed certificate is required with each translation stating that the translation is accurate.
If you are sending a photocopy of a degree certificate all the details found on the document will have to be translated into English even parts that are in very small print and are barely legible. If for some reason the translator is unable to read any information on the certificate he or she must add a note on the translated version stating the parts that are ineligible.
There are other documents such as your birth certificate which will need translating too through the use of a certified translation services for immigration, using the same process as for degree certificates.
