H1B and L1 Fee to go up by $4000 and $4500 until year 2025

This Omnibus bill to increase the H1B and L1 petition Fee passed both US House of Representatives and US Senate on Friday ( Dec 18th, 2015). It was also singed by President Obama to be law soon. Companies should pay extra fees for filing H1b applications if it satisfies both the condition right more than 50 employees + 50% employees on h1b. For Indian consulting companies which “bodyshop” IT professional from Indian for multiple H1B visa applications, it would become a problem since some of them don’t really have full-time positions and they ask employees to pay for H1B filing fee, so with the new law, not all ICC employees can afford multiple H1B application, and theproblem of fraud would be partially solved.

In general, it sounds good for less H1b fraud from Indian consulting companies. For more details, please refer to http://www.h1bwiki.com/h1b-visa-fee-doubled-bill-passed/
