H1-Status for Korean Medical Professional
Client: Healthcare Provider in Youngstown, Ohio
Client’s Country of Origin: South Korea
Case Type: H-1B Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker (Extension for Employment)
Date of Application: June 10, 2002
Date of Approval: August 26, 2002
Our client retained Herman Legal Group to extend a soon-to-expire H-1B status for its manager.
H-1B application for applicants from certain countries may be essentially a lottery, but that’s not the end. Your visa, that is, relationship with an employer can 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 the H-1B visa. We believe in immigrants and are ready to help you. Call us, should you find the need.
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 also helped prove that the duties of the beneficiary satisfied special occupation requirements and the beneficiary’s qualification for jobs of the same kind. Namely, our client, through us, made a convincing argument 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.
