H-1B Status for Korean Medical Professional
Client: A Healthcare Provider in Youngstown, Ohio
Location: Youngstown, Ohio
Beneficiary’s Nationality: South Korean
Case Type: H-1B Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to extend the soon to expire H-1B status for its manager.
Date of Application: June 10, 2002
Date of Approval: August 26, 2002
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT demonstrate that the extension of employment met critical criteria for H-1B status set by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service. We helped our client prove that the duties of the beneficiary satisfy special occupation requirement and the beneficiary’s qualification for jobs of the same kind. Namely, our client, through us, made a convincing argument that why it needed this particular manager based on the nature of this job and this manager’s background.
TWO MONTHS LATER, our client was granted permanent residence.
CHALLENGE: H-1B application for applicants from certain countries may be essentially a lottery, but that was not the end. Your visa, that is, relationship with an employer, could only last for the legal maximum. In addition, for H-1B visa extension, your employer may still have to make the same argument, essentially, for why to keep hiring you, as it once did when applying for H-1B visa.
We believe in immigrants and are ready to help you. Call us, should you find the need.
