Employment and lifestyle in New York City

With over one million businesses and new ones constantly popping there is definitely no employment shortage and a lot of options to consider in New York! The city is noisy, fast-paced and very competitive, from its immensely diversified communities, never-ending entertaining facilities, thriving nightlife, cultural hotspots, prosperous industries and vast employment market including some of the biggest corporations in the world such as HBO, American Express, Shutterstock, Tiffany’s as well as The Wall Street Stock Exchange making it definitely worth relocating to!

That being said, you should also take into consideration the very high cost of living in New York, which means that in order to have a decent and comfortable life you must have a good job with a well-paying wage to cover your rent and basic daily needs.

Working in New York City through an H1B visa

Applying for an H1B visa, after securing a job in NYC with a reliable employer is one way of getting your relocation process started. If you are not familiar with the term, then let us start by clarifying what an H1B visa is!

A non-immigrant visa category specifically designed for U.S based employers who wish to bring foreign nationals to work for them in specialty occupations that require specific knowledge and expertise. Navigating the legal process of applying for an H1B visa can be quite stressful and sometimes overwhelming which is why it is recommended that you get the help of an experienced immigration attorney.

What are the H1B visa requirements?

To qualify for an H1B visa, the USCIS looks for certain eligibility criteria such as:

  • Having a valid job offer with a U.S based employer that satisfies the specialty occupation standard.
  • Having a specific bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in combined education and experience in return.
  • The required degree for the job has to be common to the industry among similar organizations.
  • Your Employer has to file a labor condition with the Department of Labor concerning the terms and conditions of their contract with you.
  • You must demonstrate that you have the ability to work in that particular job and are skilled enough to perform the required duties.
  • You must prove that you are coming to the U.S to work in that particular specialty occupation and not to pursue a hobby or to give free advice or any humanitarian service.

Do you need an immigration lawyer?

Having a good immigration attorney by your side and consulting with them before submitting your application will ensure you do not bump into unexpected inconveniences later- on during your H1B visa process.

Starting application correctly and properly filing the required paperwork is a crucial part of your entire journey. Since U.S, laws are continuously changing, navigating them and preparing the necessary paperwork on your own can be nerve wrecking. Which is why, you should definitely consider investing in a trustworthy immigration attorney.
