H-1B applicants can soon apply for fiscal year 2018

Prospective immigrants have many tasks at hand if they are moving to the U.S. for work. Even after they have secured an employer and comprehensively developed an idea of where they wish to live, they may have stress and uncertainty related to the H-1B visa application process. In Mami-Dade, Florida, and the rest of the country, the process can change from time to time, making things even more complicated for applicants.

Soon, those who wish to move to the U.S. on an H-1B visa will be able to submit an application for fiscal year 2018. Applicants should keep a number of things in mind, such as realizing that a lottery is used to grant visas when there are not enough for everyone who has applied. Additionally, applicants may want to consider the current political climate when approaching the application process.

For prospective applicants, applying promptly is important for multiple reasons. For starters, it can take up to eight months before an application is approved. In the past, applicants could have their application reviewed in 15 days by paying a $1,225 fee. However, this option will be temporarily halted by USCIS on April 3. Moreover, the 85,000 H-1B visa limit was met in under a week during the previous fiscal year.

Between changes and political issues, those who hope to apply for a work visa in the U.S. may have all sorts of concerns. However, they could be able to ease some of their worries by discussing their set of circumstances with a legal professional who has dealt with many of these cases.
