Hi All,

I have a question regarding H1 visa..
I came to know that April 1st is the dead line for applying H1 visa..By that time i will have one year and four months experience and by the time i attend VISA interview in Nov i will have 2 years of experience..

Is there any rule that we should have this much of experience before applying for H1?

My consultant is saying that in the worst case i will be loosing 1000$ + Interest for 80000 for 7 months
and they are saying that this 80000 is refundable.. Will they really refund this money incase our VISA gets rejected.....???


Thanks & Regards,
Sudhakar karnati

Dude,If I am CEO of consultancy firm, I will take 50% share and return 50% to guy who wanted to seek H1 visa.Its not my mistake that your visa will be denied.Its sheer luck,lottery system. :roll:
I am also in touch with Hyderbad based bodyshopper who claims that he places H1Bs in many top US IT companies.But i am not ready to shell big amount.

Hi Sandip Sankeshwar,

Thanks for your reply..But how can we get H1 visa if we don't take the help of such consultancies..
Can you please guide me what is the correct way to apply for H1 with out the help of bodyshopper?
And what is the amount to file for H1 my consultant is asking 1,20,000/- And this consultant is from U.S. it self he only called me this morning..He said he got my resume from one of the job portals..

Thanks & Regards,
Sudhakar Karnati

Hi All...........
Sorry to say that


i dont have any suggestion to give
but i am interested in knowing about
consultant as they are saying you have to pay
1,20,000 Rs then they will support your H1 visa
and get you through applying for job ahead .......
Please any info on the below shown queries will be realy
great....................

why they are actualy asking for soo much amount simply
for sake of deposit,or they will later sponsore in staying
and other expenditures ahead in US till you get the job?
or we have to spend on our own on (staying,food)when we go to US
ie the consultant will merely direct you where to go for interview?

One more doubt i have is if in lottery system
your application gets selected for visa
than when ie which month are the interviews for visa?

Are the visa interviews too tough to be cleared?

Thanks in advance............
Regards

A bank guarantee that some consultants take is less riskier than paying upfront..the money is yours unless you dont join them in the US , if you get a visa. Personally, I feel anything more that 1 lakh is excess. Make sure he pays for your flight ticket, inital accomodation and atleast some part of your insurance.
Alternatively, you can join one of the top 5 Indian companies. If you are lucky they would do a visa for you, if you stay with them for some time.

Those good posts were very tongue-in-cheek. They (are supposed to) sound exactly like what somebody says when selling their car. "Very good runner. 600 miles to the gallon, no rust and only 120,000 miles driven. £14,999." They were very sarcastic, more of a warning than a recommendation.

And . . . welcome to the Ranch
