2014 H-1B Visas - Winning the H-1B Race

2014 H-1B Visas - Winning the H-1B Race

Posted by: ScottMond Law Firm

Topic: Employment Law & Immigration

Our firm is pleased to have successfully processed H-1B visas for approximately 15 years on behalf of our clients. Currently, as we're busy preparing H-1B visas in time for the opening of fiscal year 2014 (beginning April 1), we wanted to share the following tips:

  • An H-1B visa cannot be filed unless the Department of Labor ("DOL") first certifies a Labor Condition Application ("LCA").
  • DOL has a special verification process for FEIN which requires enough time to file twice.
  • The LCA application must be filed electronically.
  • Renewals are generally not subject to the cap, but some are so it is important that your Immigration Counsel double check the Federal Regulations on H-1B non cap subject renewals.
  • An approved H-1B visa does not mean one can begin work before the opening of fiscal year for 2014 (October 2013).

U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services ("USCIS") has just published the below Resource Page, which has additional very important information in order to get an approved H-1B visa. Click on below link:
