Applying for an H1B Visa in 2014

By Michael Niren March 28, 2013 (Updated December 13, 2020) 1 min. read
H-1B visa update

The deadline for applying for the 2014 H1B work visa is fast approaching. The earliest starting work date for the applications that will begun being accepted on April 1st, 2013

Qualification for Applying for an H1B Visa 2014

The qualifications needed for an H1B work visa for the United States are strict, but if you meet them it can be a great opportunity.

To obtain this visa, you must have a job offer in the United States that will pay you the prevailing wage, and this job offer must be for a specialty occupation. A specialty occupation is one that requires a high level of education, usually a bachelor’s degree or higher. These visa applications also require that you have the correct background and experience required for the job, and that anywhere this job would be offered, the same high level of education and expertise would be required.

Am I Eligible to Apply for an H1B Work Visa?

If you think you are eligible for the H1B work visa application, speak to a licensed immigration lawyer immediately to see if you are eligible and start the application process. It is vital that you apply as soon as possible because the cap is expected to fill up within a few days.

Are You Looking for An Immigration Attorney?

There are certain occupations that are NOT included in the cap of 65,000 visas, meaning that if you qualify you could obtain your visa anyway despite the cap. However, you must act as soon as possible to speak with a licensed immigration lawyer and find out it you are eligible for this visa.

If you have immigration questions, we may have the answers you seek. All of Niren & Associates’ cases are handled by independent, licensed and award winning Canadian and U.S. lawyers who adhere to the highest standards of client service.

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.
