2013 H1B visa applications

Do you want to work in the United States? Do you think that you would qualify for the H1B work visa? You could be eligible to work in the United States on an H1B work visa if you are a Canadian or other foreign national who has a job offer in the United States that meets the specifications of the H1B work visa, you could be on your way. H1B work visa applications for 2014

This visa is for workers in specialty occupations, which are a specific type of occupation that requires a high level of skill or education – meaning, not just anyone can do the job. One of the drawbacks of this visa is that there is a quota, or certain amount of these visas doled out each year. Unfortunately, the deadline for applications for 2013 has already passed – but applications will soon open for 2014.

H1B work visa applications open April 1, 2013

Acceptance of H1B work visa applications for 2014 will open on April 1st, 2013. The earliest date someone who is accepted could start working is October 1st, 2013.

Because this capped visa is so competitive, the United States government is sure to be inundated with a slew of applications on this date. This is why it is especially important to ensure that you know how, when and where to apply for your H1B work visa.

In addition, if you do not meet all of the requirements, if your application has errors or if all of your supporting documentation is not up to snuff, your application could be delayed. There are also things that your employer must do in order for you to apply for this visa successfully, so you should get started right away with the application process to meet this deadline.
