U.S. Companies Say H-1B Hires Are “Critical” to Success

U.S. ImmigrationThe struggle for anyone submitting an H-1B petition has increased in the past few fiscal years, with the amount of applications being received increasing steadily every year. U.S. companies have been hiring more foreign workers based on their need for more foreign national talent. The consensus for most U.S. companies is that they would hire U.S. citizens if they could find an individual that was qualified, expect they are having difficulty finding U.S. citizens that would be.

H-1B visas do come with the added stress for the individual looking to obtain one, also for the companies that would be willing to hire them. For everyone that did apply for an H-1B visa only half will be accepted based on the number of applicants and the cap only allow 85,000 H-1B visas being issued. Due to so many petitions submitted the acceptances will be chosen based on a lottery, which could mean a loss to the employer if a key hire is denied.

For someone looking to obtain an H-1B visa but they get denied there are other visas the individual may try to apply for based on their circumstances. The visas they could try to apply for include; TN, E-2, E-3, L-1, H-1B1, and the F-1 OPT STEM extension.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
