Get Your 2013 H1B Visa Application Ready

By Michael Niren February 10, 2012 (Updated December 13, 2020) 0 min. read

Now is the time to have an immigration lawyer prepare your H1B visa application for 2013

What is an H1B Visa?

An H1B Visa is a type of US work permit that allows foreigners to work “specialty occupations” for US employers.

The occupations that qualify for an H1B visa are usually highly skilled and require a University degree.

For more information on H1B visas and the H1B application process, click here.

The H1B Visa cap

Every year there is a cap or quota for the number of H1B visas given out. For last year (fiscal year 2012), there was a cap of 65,000 that filled up quickly. This year (fiscal year 2013) is expected to have about the same quota.

When can I apply for an H1B visa?

H1B visas for fiscal year 2013 will be accepted starting April 1, 2012. It is imperative that, if you want to apply for an H1B visa, you apply as soon as the US government begins accepting applications. In order to ensure your application is ready to be processed, speak to one of our immigration lawyers today by filling out the form to the right.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
