H1B visa for USA
- 0Jul 22, '10 by Astromikaelohello everyone,
I am aware about the retogression going on( who isnt?) but I would like to know if there are people here who were granted H1b visas this year? and how long will it take an H1b visa to process after first step of application, say an agency or an employer is already available? ill appreciate any of your inputs thanks.

you may see an applicant with 10 years experience being denied, and a nurse with 2 years experience being granted a visa.
Generally, the process will depend on how your employer/lawyer responds to USCIS, how you provide documents, and how USCIS analyze your case.
But also, be reminded on the requirements for H1B visa.

in premium processing, you will know the result 15 days from filing, whether it would be denied, approved, or RFE (request for evidence).
regular processing can take months. I've seen some posts here and in other forums that they have been waiting for 4 months, six months, and even a year. But I think the average is 4 months, from filing to embassy interview to arrival in the US. Same time frame even if you are denied, I assume. But again, it may not be your case.
