H-1B Approved in Seven DaysPublished: Oct 5, 2009 Source: My Source
Our client is a manufacturer of industrial thermal furnaces. It employs a citizen of India who is a graduate engineer. He obtained his undergraduate degree in India and his Ph.D. in Engineering in the United States.
Three years ago his employer petitioned for him in H-1B status. The petition was approved for a period of three years. The employer retained us to extend his status for an additional three years.
We determined the actual wage for the position at the place of employ, obtained a state prevail-ing wage determination, electronically filed a Labor Condition Application, prepared and filed a Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker with U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, along with appropriate supporting documentation and our letter in support, and requested Premium Processing.
The petition was approved in seven days, and the employee’s status as an H-1B was extended for a period of three years.
