See Important H1B Visa Tips on Getting a Fast Approval from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services:
- Have a headhunter verify that your job requires the minimum of a bachelor’s degree and put it in writing.
- Find job Postings on Monster.com or Career Builder.com that clearly states the minimum of a bachelor’s degree is required for the foreign national employee’s position.
- Complete the LCA with the Depart of Labor (DOL) immediately once it is determined that this job is a specialized profession because it requires the minimum of a bachelor’s degree.
- Employers should write a business necessity letter with an experienced immigration attorney that needs to be submitted to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”)
- Do not include financials for the business or employer unless UCIS explicitly writes and asks that you supply this information.
- Ensure that you have all credentials evaluated that were not earned in the United States.
- Ensure that there are no blanks on the application I-129. Fill in LCA code wherever required.
- Make sure signatures are signed on I-129 in two key spots. (Often only one spot is signed and can cause a rejection).
- Consider using Premium Processing which guarantees a decision on your H1B visa within 15 business days.
If the H1-B cap is close, work with an immigration law firm and attorney that has good support staff. A solo immigration with no support staff may miss important information and make mistakes due to basic human nature. A proper system and staff in place ensures the quality control needed to ensure that important items will not be missed, despite the “H1B rush”. A fast turn around is indeed required when H1B visa’s will run out for the fiscal year.
