Resolving Immigration Problems In An Honest & Responsible Manner

Posts tagged "H-1B Visas"

Are changes coming to the number of H-1B visas allowed?

Problems with immigration are still considered a hot topic among U.S. lawmakers. While one of the biggest concerns frequently reported has to deal with the number of undocumented immigrants currently living in and coming to the country every year, visa issues are something many would also like to see addressed. When it comes to H-1B visas, which are needed for certain types of employment, approval can be difficult to get. The lack of availability not only hurts immigrants but also employers in California and throughout the country.

H-1B visas applications require attention to detail

Professionals who desire to make a move to the United States, either for a new life or simply a learning opportunity, are required to have proper legal documentation in order to continue working in their particular field. H-1B visas are generally required for certain specialized positions, but getting one of these visas isn't easy. The number granted across the country each year is limited. Immigrants to California who would like to work in their trained profession must act quickly and without error if they are to be granted this kind of visa.

How do I know what type of employment visa I need?

Individuals from all across the globe often have a desire to obtain gainful employment in the United States. In fact, every year thousands of immigrants are granted the necessary documentation required to work not only in California, but nationwide. Whether their desire is simply to have a temporary growth opportunity or includes hopes of someday making this new work arrangement permanent, an employment visa is necessary to get the process started.

Short supply of H-1B visas blamed for poor tech industry growth

People flock to American from all around the world for jobs or to live out their own “American dream.” Unfortunately, getting the proper documentation to acquire that job or to stay in the country permanently can prove to be rather difficult. According to recent data, a shortage of H-1B visas offered to immigrants can be blamed for poor growth in the country’s tech industries. Some cities in California have seen the effects of this.

California may benefit if changes made to increase H-1B visas

By now, most Americans have probably heard the phrase "immigration reform" more times than they can count. What may not be as well-known, however, are the wide-ranging repercussions that can be a result of delaying or denying applicants the highly coveted H-1B visas they seek. Businesses in California may suffer from lack of potential growth if these denials continue into the future.

California employers may want more H-1B visas

When it comes to certain professional areas, there can be at times a lack of qualified personnel that can carry out necessary tasks. As a result, California employers may wish to hire individuals from other countries who could potentially be able to work in the United States on H-1B visas. However, there is a cap on the number of these visas that are allowed, and some companies are hoping that immigration reform could potentially increase that cap.

Senate version of employment immigration reform draws fire

There's a heated debate over changes in the H-1B visa program made in the Senate version of immigration reform. Employment immigration is vital in California and perhaps to a slightly lesser degree throughout the country. Several sources are criticizing the protectionism imbedded in the Senate version.
