Does my position need to be full-time to qualify for H-1B?

To qualify for H-1B status, a position does not need to be full-time. Part-time positions may qualify for H-1B status as long as the position and foreign national can meet the standard H-1B requirements. Departments must keep track of all hours worked for individuals in H-1B status based on a part-time position. To change from a full-time to part-time position (or vice versa) while in H-1B status, FSIS must file an amended H-1B petition with USCIS before such a change may take effect.
