Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. Work (H-1B) Visa Services
Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. offers full immigration services, including work (H-1B) visa services. In other words, we represent U.S. companies bringing skilled workers to the United States.
And, we represent good people just like you throughout the United States and through U.S. embassies throughout the world. The work visa allows you to live and work in the United States.
There are significant benefits to Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. helping you to obtain a Work Visa.
If you are granted one of the 85,000 H-1B visas that are granted each fiscal year, you are able to come and work (for a particular employer) in the United States.
You may bring your spouse and children (under the age of 21) with you under an H-4 visa, which gives them permission to live in the United States with you. However, they cannot work without their own H-1B visa/work permit.
Your H-1B visa also serves as a reentry document, meaning that the holder has the right to reenter the United States after an absence.
It is significant to note that an H-1B visa holder is neither a U.S. citizen nor a permanent resident and, thereby, does not have all the rights associated with citizenship, such as voting.
Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. can help you to renew your H-1B .
Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. can help you to renew your H-1B visa. The H-1B visa is granted for a three-year period. It is commonly extended to six years upon request.
However, there are very limited circumstances wherein the permit is extended beyond the six-year time frame. Defense department workers may qualify for a 10-year work permit.
The visa also expires if you are no longer working for your H-1B employer. If you resign or are dismissed, you must leave the country immediately, unless you transfer your visa to another employer. Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. can help you to transfer your visa to another sponsoring employer.
If you wish to remain in the United States, you have the options of obtaining permanent residency status (e.g., green card), leaving the United States for at least one year and reapplying for an H-1B visa, or (if you still have time on your original visa) having your visa transferred to a new employer.
How Geygan & Geygan, Ltd. helps you to obtain an H-1B visa through your employer.
We help the U.S. employer, who must apply for the work permit on your behalf. The application process takes between three and six months. You cannot apply for it on your own.
You must be highly educated (equivalent to a bachelor’s degree with appropriate licensing) and trained for a specialty occupation such as architecture, engineering, biotechnology, medicine/health, law, the arts, social sciences, physical sciences, education, and telecom.
