Professional Worker Visas Attorney in Tampa

Providing Valuable H1B Visa Legal Advice

Legal Guidance for H-1B Visas

The global business world is increasingly competitive. In order for companies to gain a competitive advantage, they seek to recruit the best talent in their specific industry. This includes both domestic and international candidates for professional positions. Many use H-1B visas to fill critical positions in their organizations. When you need the advice of a professional worker visas attorney in Plantation, Tampa, or another South Florida community, call Grace Gardiner at Gardiner Immigration P.A.

Requirements for a Professional Worker Visa

The H-1B visa allows businesses in the United States to recruit foreign nationals in a variety of professions. The applicant must have at least a U.S. Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent level of education. In addition, the employer who sponsors the applicant must have a vacancy that requires that degree.

The H-1B visa is available for professions that include:

  • Banking and Finance
  • Education
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing
  • Medical and Scientific Research

There is a limit to the number of H-1B non-immigrant visas issued every year. Currently, that number is 65,000 for applicants with a bachelor’s degree. An additional 20,000 visas are available for foreign nationals with a Masters degree. For the purposes of this type of visa, the year runs from October 1 through September 30. If you need a professional worker visas lawyer in Tampa, call Gardiner Immigration.

Premium Processing Service

If you are in a hurry to fill a vacancy, your business can request that the application is processed within 15 calendar days for an additional fee of $1,225. The USCIS will issue an approval, request additional information, a notice to deny, or to investigate within this time period. In the event the USCIS is unable to respond within the time frame, the premium processing fee will be returned. This service is only available for employment-based positions. Gardiner Immigration P.A. has a long history of successfully advising and guiding companies and individuals through the process.
