Am I eligible for H1 Visa with distance B.E(computers) and 9 yr of IT exp?

Hi SIr,

In 1996 I had completed my course in Mechanical Engineering. Due to personal reasons I could not complete my arrears. In 2004 I had got a chance to work with a software company where I had joined computer engineering in a distance mode and I have completed the same. From 2004 onwards I have been working for some reputed (Mid Level) IT companies. Please let me know if I am eligible for H1B Visa. If not please let me know what do I do to get myself eligbile for the H1b Visa. Require an expert advise. Please do the needful



U are eligible. 12 Points are needed to qualify for H1B. Distance education is valid if it is from an institution approved by UGC

[b]The requirements to qualify for an H1B visa are:

You must have ONE of the following[/b]

1) A Bachelor's degree or Masters Degree (or the foreign equivalent degree from your Country), OR

2) 12 years work experience, OR

3) A mix of further education + work experience

The general H1B visa qualification rule is: 
- for every 1 year of studies at University / College = 3 points
- for every 1 year of work experience = 1 point

12 points in 'total' are required to qualify for the H1B visa program
