    Variation in H-1B job approved and actually performed

    Video Transcript:

    Minor variations in jobs are normal. But the key question is; is there a substantial change. Any substantial change in an H-1B job requires an amendment. Please stick with the truth. Be honest about what your job is and what is required is that you make a good faith estimate at the time you file the H-1B. If there are minor variations, the system will tolerate them, but if there is a substantial change file an H-1B amendment. Also, as long as you are qualified you can take any job for which you are qualified, without regard to what you did before. FAQ in detail...

    How far ahead of job or petition start date

    can I apply for H-1B visa stamping?

    Video Transcript:

    For H-1B the recommendation at the U.S. consulate in India is 90 days. You can apply 90 days ahead of time, but they do make exemptions and I have seen them do it as much as six months ahead of time. Always a good idea to check. My understanding is that their website says something like 90 days, so just keep that in mind. So if you are going to apply for an H-1B you can apply perhaps 90 days ahead of the start date or the petition approval date.  FAQ in detail...

    Yearbook of Immigration Statistics

    The Yearbook of Immigration Statistics is a compendium of tables that provides data on foreign nationals who, during a fiscal year, were granted lawful permanent residence (i.e., admitted as immigrants or became legal permanent residents), were admitted into the United States on a temporary basis (e.g., tourists, students, or workers), applied for asylum or refugee status, or were naturalized. The Yearbookalso presents data on immigration enforcement actions, including alien apprehensions, removals, and returns. The Yearbook tables are released as they become available. A final PDF is released in September of the following fiscal year.

    In addition to the Yearbook, the Office of Immigration Statistics' Annual Flow Reports and Annual Reports provide text, tables, and charts on legal permanent residents, refugees and asylees, nonimmigrant admissions, naturalizations, and enforcement actions. The Annual Flow Reports and Annual Reports have replaced the text chapters in the earlier editions of the Yearbook.
