Limited Number of H1B Visas Issued: April is Key

Limited number of H1B visas issuedApplications for 2016 H1B visas will begin to be accepted in April, 2015. There is a limited number of H1B visas issued, which is why it is important to submit your application as soon as possible.

In order to qualify for a H1B visa, you must be sponsored by a company, the job offered must require a bachelor’s degree, its foreign equivalent, or a higher degree, and your degree and/or job experience must match the position for which you are applying.

The window of opportunity to apply for an H1B visa will come and go extremely fast due to the limited number of H1B visas issued, which is why NOW is the time to begin preparing your application so that you can be one of the first ones to apply for the visa.

In 2014, USCIS began accepting applications for H1B visas on April 1 and stopped accepting them less than a week later, on April 7. It is expected that the high demand for H1B visas will continue in this year’s application process, which is why it is of the utmost importance that your visa be not only submitted on time, but also submitted correctly. Due to the high demand for the H1B visa, it is that much more important that your visa be properly prepared, as the competition to obtain this visa is fierce.

If you are an employee who would like to apply for an H1B visa, you must have an employer who has not only offered you a job, but is also willing to sponsor you for the visa. The application process for a H1B visa is the combined effort of the applicant, the employer, and the immigration attorney.
