WHAT IS IT?
The H-1B visa is an employment visa for foreign professionals who wish to work in a "specialty occupation". While there is no clear definition, a specialty occupation is typically one that requires at least a Bachelor's degree. If the applicant is eligible, his or her H-1B will be valid for up to 3 years with the option to extend an additional 3 years (for a total of 6 years). In certain cases an H-1B can be extended beyond the 6 year period.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PROCESS THE VISA?
At best, an H-1B can be processed, filed and decided within 21 business days. Generally, the process takes anywhere between 4-6 weeks to several months depending on delays in gathering documentation.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Our legal fees for H-1B processing start at $1500 and average at $1900.
Government filing fees are the following:
H-1B Filing Fee: $325
Fraud Detection Fee: $500
Training Fee: $750 - $1500
