Definition The H 1B visa is available to Walgreens to hire on a temporary basis qualified foreign workers This visa currently has an overall limitation of six years which includes any prior time the employee has spent working for other employers in the United States under H 1B and or L 1 status Walgreens will seek approval of this visa for those employees hired conditionally upon Walgreens effort to obtain approval of this visa classification How does one qualify for an H 1B visa A threshold requirement of the H 1B visa is that the job offered must require a minimum of a bachelor s degree in a specialized field and the candidate must possess a closely related degree to this specialized field or its equivalent as recognized by the Immigration and Naturalization Service INS Diplomas transcripts and other education documents issued by foreign institutions must be evaluated by a third party education credentials evaluator prior to filing the petition to ensure the equivalency will be recognized by the INS In addition those documents written in a language other than English will have to be translated by a certified translator If the degree is unrelated the candidate must present complete transcripts a detailed resume describing previous employment history and letters from previous employers confirming the work experience in the specialized field The education and work experience will then need to be evaluated to determine if the credentials are recognized as equivalent to an U S degree in the specialized field Certified translations may also be needed What steps are involved in the processing of an H 1B Petition Preparation of the H 1B petition involves 2 steps Preparing and filing a Labor Condition Application LCA is an attestation by the employer about various job conditions One example of an attestation is that the employer is paying the prevailing wage for the H 1B position This must be filed with the Department of Labor The processing time for

he start work at Walgreens immediately A recently enacted law allows for the portability of H 1B visa classification If the individual currently holds H 1B visa classification with another employer he

behalf of the individual must be filed with the Immigration and Naturalization Service Employment authorization shall continue until the new petition is adjudicated If the new petition is denied such employment authorization will discontinue If the individual is currently in another nonimmigrant visa classification other than H 1B with another employer can she start work at Walgreens immediately H 1B status is employer and job specific Before commencing employment with Walgreens INS must approve a petition filed on behalf of the individual by Walgreens Please note that the individual must remain employed with her current employer until the new petition has been approved The processing time in this case can take approximately 3 4 months Is there a numerical limit on available H 1B visas The United States Congress has placed a limit on the number of H 1B visas that can be issued during any given fiscal year at 65 000 Once that limit has been reached for the fiscal year INS will not process any new H 1B petitions until the new fiscal year begins How does one extend the H 1B visa classification Foreign nationals are granted H 1B visa classification for an initial period of three

allows a foreign national to stay in the United States and be employed indefinitely as long as he or she does not abandon the Lawful Permanent Resident classification What is an employment based preference category and under which preference category does an individual qualify Congress has designated those groups to which it gives preference in immigrating to the United States Employment based applications are broken down into 5 preference categories Each preference category is subject to an overall numerical limitation The first employment based preference category which does not require a labor certification application is set aside for priority workers eligible for one of the following categories Multinational managers and executives transferred to the US from a foreign affiliate subsidiary branch or parent of the US office Outstanding researchers and professors Individuals possessing extraordinary ability in the arts sciences education business and athletics The

processing times are extremely inconsistent and subject to change Most employees will go through the LABOR CERTIFICATION PROCESS consisting of 3 major stages Stage 1 Labor Certification Stage 2 I 140 Immigrant Visa Petition Stage 3 I 485 Adjustment of Status What are Priority Dates and backlogs Because of the large number of people who wish to become Permanent Residents a system has been devised to regulate the distribution of available immigrant visa numbers pursuant to a quota system An individual s priority date is established in one of two ways If the individual is required to go through the labor certification process the priority date is the date the labor certification was filed with the state Department of Labor If the individual was exempt from the labor certification process the priority date is the date the I 140 Immigrant Visa petition was filed with the INS If the individual s priority date is current and the immigrant visa petition has been approved an immigrant visa is available As such the individual may be able to file his permanent residence application I 485 with the INS Foreign nationals from Mexico India China and the Philippines may experience delays before their priority date is current due to the high number of immigrant visa applications by nationals of those countries An employee s six years of H 1B eligibility is maxing out and the I 140 has been approved but she is not able to file the I 485 Adjustment of Status application due to priority date backlogs Can she remain in the U S until she files the I 485 A recently enacted law allows foreign nationals in H 1B classification to benefit from an extension of the H 1B classification under certain conditions The INS must have approved an Immigrant Visa Petition on behalf of the individual based on the employment based first second or third preference classification In addition the individual must be a national of one of the oversubscribed countries and be waiting for his priority date to become current to file the I 485 application What options exist for obtaining Permanent Residence classification based on a family relationship The U S government has decreed that certain close ties to U S Citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents may make a foreign national eligible for immigration As such the following family based groups may be eligible for permanent residence Immediate relatives of U S Citizens Immediate relative is defined as a spouse unmarried child under the age of 21 years or parent of a U S Citizen Other close relatives of U S Citizens Other close relative is defined as unmarried sons and daughters over the age of 21 years of U S Citizens Spouses and Children of Lawful Permanent Residents Married sons and daughters over the age of 21 years of U S Citizens Spouses and unmarried sons and daughters of U S Permanent Residents Brothers and sisters of U S Citizens What is the Diversity Lottery Each year the U S Government makes 55 000 immigrant visas
