H-1B Fraud Report Signals Oversight and Changes

leave a comment »

H-1B visa category generally allows specialty workers to work in the United States for a period of six years. Where the “green card” process has been started, a specialty worker can seek an extension of time in the H-1B classification. 

In October 2008, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a report that found that approximately one in five H-1B visa applications are fradulent or contain technical violations of federal laws and regulations.

For more on the USCIS report and analysis see our attorney Hanishi Ali’s article published in the Worcester Business Journal.
