H1B Visa Fees
Author: New York Immigration attorney Alena Shautsova
H1B visa is one of the most common visas which are used to employ foreign workers in the U.S. It allows foreign specialists from a variety of occupations to be legally employed in the US, as well as provides for a dependent status for their family members.
The process of H1B visa starts with an employee finding an employer in the US who is willing and able to hire the employee; is willing to sponsor the foreign worker; and wait for him/her to get appropriate documents. There are filing deadlines which start from April 1 each year.If the employer’s petition is granted, an employee will be able to start employment on October 1 of the year the application/petition was filed. Sometimes, however, the adjudication of the petition takes much longer, and the start date understandably will be delayed.
