What is H1B visa?
The H1B visa is a non-immigrant working visa issued to U.S. companies as permission to employ foreign workers. In H1B application, the company will the applicant, and the employee is only the beneficiary. Therefore, employees must first have the employer’s consent before applying for H1B visas. Due to the large demand of H1B visa, all applicants must go through a lottery process every April, and a total of 85,000 slots will be available (20,000 are reserved for graduate student).
Evan small, start-up company will suffice
Unlike L, EB-2, or EB-3, H1B has a simple requirement for companies as applicants. As long as the company is legally registered in the United States and is actually operating, it will be eligible to apply for H1B visa. Based on the analysis of GOH1B team, the USCIS sometimes favored small and start-up companies over the large ones because they can create more job opportunities in the United States. The GOH1B lawyer team is experienced in handling H1B applications for small companies: more than 60% of the cases that we processed each year came from small and medium-sized enterprises.
