N24 Correspondent, LOS ANGELES:- US worker visa H-1B online application process begins from today. Worker visas for FY 2022 can be registered by going to USCIS’s online system. Applications can be submitted until 12 noon on March 25, according to USCIS.
Applications will be drawn between March 25 and March 31. From the first lottery, 65,000 regular quotas will be selected. After that, 20,000 from the second lottery will be selected from the second lottery.
Those selected will be able to apply for a visa from April 1. Applications can be submitted by June 30. USCIS will not accept delayed applications.
Workers who want to work in the US work visa H-1B cannot file it themselves. For this, the employer company in the United States must have offered the job to the person who wants to come to the United States on a worker visa.
The initial registration for this visa can be done online only on behalf of the company after the company in the US has offered the job. USCIS states that a registration number will be provided for each timely registration.
You will need to use a USCIS online account and pay a $ 10 registration fee. US employers or agents applying on behalf of their potential workers are required to use a registrant account as they are classified as registrants.
Similarly, if the employer employs legal representatives, such representatives will be able to add the client company to their account. However, the details of the potential worker can be filled and submitted only after March 9. Similarly, the $ 10 fee can be paid only after March 9.
Employer applicants or representatives will be able to include in one online session the details of many who want to bring in a worker visa at once. Such details may be edited before the final fee is paid and before submission. But after paying the fee, it will not be possible to edit.
The US government has been issuing H-1B worker visas to 85,000 people every year. For that, the government has been conducting a lottery system. An online registration system was introduced last year.
After the initial registration of the American company online, if selected, the process for the overseas worker to come to the United States begins. For example, if a person is in Nepal and has been offered a job by an American company, the American employer must first register the application online. If there is a choice, the employer company in the United States will take the process forward. And, if the application is approved by USCIS, the person in Nepal can come to the United States with a worker visa.
Employers can offer jobs to those who have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the United States or outside the United States. But those with an American degree are given special priority.
For a position to come through an H-1B visa, the worker must have at least a bachelor’s degree or higher, or equivalent.
The work done in the company is so complex or unique that only a person with a degree can do it. Or having a degree for company work should be a confirmation of the general criteria. This means that if the company does not need a degree, it must confirm why a degree holder is needed, or the company must have a degree.
The company must confirm that the worker usually needs a degree or similar qualification for the position. Or, the nature of the work is so specific or complex that the knowledge required for the job requires a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Similarly, the beneficiary or worker who gets the job must have fulfilled one of the four qualifications.
Beneficiaries must have a bachelor’s degree or higher from an accredited college or university in the United States. It doesn’t matter if you have returned home after obtaining a degree in the United States.
Or you must have a foreign degree to be recognized as a bachelor’s degree or higher in the United States.
Or, you must be licensed by the state to work in a special profession. A license that allows you to practice a particular profession.
Or, should have received any thematic education or training. Which is like a special degree. In this case, you must be an expert in the relevant subject.
Generally, employers and beneficiaries who meet these criteria can benefit from a US work visa, H-1B.
As the employer company will pay for the visa and complete the process, the lawyers have suggested being careful of the swindlers who ask for the visa.
