We are currently preparing and filing new H1B Visa Petitions (H-1B Visa FY-2014 Quota – earliest filing date is April 1, 2013), H1B Transfer, H1B Renewal/Extension and H1B amended petitions.
If you would like our Immigration Law Firm to assist you in obtaining an H1B Visa, the following is a breakdown of our fees:
Our attorney fee is $895 ($495 to start, $400 due upon USCIS Approval).
$325 for the USCIS I-129 Petition.
$1,500 for the h1b visa USCIS “Education and Training Fee” (if employer has 25 or more full time employees). $750 for employers with fewer than 25 full time employees (including U.S. affiliates and subsidiaries).
The following employers are exempt from the h1b visa USCIS Education and Training Fee:
1. Institutions of higher education and related or affiliated non-profit organizations;
2. Non-profit and governmental research organizations;
3. Any employer who is filing for a second or subsequent extension of stay for an H1B visa nonimmigrant;
4. Primary or secondary education institutions; and
5. Nonprofit entities which are engaged in “established curriculum-related clinical training of students”.
$500 for the h1b visa USCIS Anti Fraud Fee.
The $500 USCIS Anti Fraud Fee is required for all new H-1B visa petitions, and for all H-1B transfers to new employers.
The $500 USCIS Anti Fraud Fee is not required for H-1B renewals / extensions with the same employer.
Optional $1,225 for USCIS Premium Processing Service. This fee to the USCIS speeds up the petition for a 15 day processing time at USCIS.
The following 5 scenarios are not subject to the annual quota.
Employer is an institution of higher education (College or University).
Employer is a nonprofit organization or entity related to or affiliated with an institution of higher education (Examples: Hospitals, Public School Systems.).
Employer is a nonprofit research organization or a governmental research organization.
You are a J-1 nonimmigrant Physician who received a waiver of the 2-year foreign residency requirement.
You have been previously granted status as an H-1B nonimmigrant in the past 6 years and not left the U.S. for more than a year after attaining such status (H-1B Renewals and Transfers).
Many employers have contacted us saying they would like to hire one or foreign nationals for a professional position, but have no idea where to begin.
Our service is geared toward both small to mid sized businesses where a President or Vice President does all of the hiring, to larger companies where the HR department simply has not had experience in filing H-1B petitions.
In most cases, we can quickly assess in a telephone conversation what the chance of success will be in your situation.
We receive hundreds of calls and emails each month from students on F-1 and OPT (Optional Practical Training) and CPT (Curricular Practical Training) who seek our assistance in switching to the H-1B visa.
H1B Visa Holders:
Our service includes processing H-1B visa transfer and H-1B visa renewal/extension cases.
We understand the importance of processing these petitions in a very timely manner, as the H-1B Visa holder may start work for the new company as soon as the transfer petition is received by USCIS.
In any case, we can help. We make the process very easy for students, employers and H-1B holders.
Students appreciate us because our fees are among the lowest in the industry.
Employers appreciate our service because we do all the work!
H-1B holders appreciate our service because we process the transfer paperwork very quickly and efficiently.
