How long does it take to obtain an H-1B visa? The H-1B visa can generally be obtained within 4-6 weeks if premium processing is utilized.
Is there a cap on the number of H-1B visas that can be issued per year? We are fortunate that our US hospital clients are not subject to any numerical cap. As they are magnet facilities and teaching hospitals they can apply for H-1B visas year round with no numerical limit attached to them.Read more →
