Cost of H1B Visa
H1B Visa application cost to the employer only 1- 1.5 lacks. H1B Visa cost involves two parts. One is actual H1B visa Petition fee and the other part is Lawyer fee. If you need H1B Petition in Premium Processing you need pay $1225 extra. Lawyer will charge around $500 (25,000). So, by any chance H1B cost won’t go beyond 2 – 2.5 lacks. Consultancy guy is just faking the H1b Rates. He want to make money out of it.
