Life in Ohio

If you are planning to start your job hunt journey, or already secured a job and Ohio is your destination, then you are probably thinking if it is the right place for you! If what you are seeking is, a low cost of living, affordable housing and a booming job market then rest reassured! Ohio is all about that. Ohio guarantees access to reputable healthcare facilities and is a moderately tax-friendly state, which makes it a great place to live in. Below are some quick facts about Ohio:

  • The average hourly rate in Ohio is around $27.15 per hour.

Nevertheless, if you are considering moving to Ohio from a foreign country, you will have to go through legal visa processing procedures in order to be able to enter the U.S and legally work within its borders. One of the most popular and commonly used visas for this case is the H1B visa, which we will be talking about next!

Moving to Ohio through an H1B visa

An H1B visa a non-immigrant visa type, allowing employers to file petitions aiming at bringing foreign professionals to work for them in what is known as “specialty occupations”. These foreigners must be highly educated and holders of bachelor’s degree or higher or its equivalent to be considered as qualified enough to perform the required job duties.

The H1B visa is temporary, with a cumulative maximum duration of 6 years. While the initial period of stay for H1B visa holders is three (3) years, it can be extended for up to three (3) more additional years. It is the most popular and commonly used visas among employers who wish to hire foreign nationals.

Therefore, if you already secured a job in Ohio and are looking forward to know what happens next, then, as you might have guessed by now, your employer will have to file an H1B visa petition for you in order to get your moving procedures started and bring you to the U.S.

How difficult is it to get an H1B visa? Let us find out!

As simple as applying for an H1B visa may seem, navigating the entire process without having a professional immigration attorney by your side to guide you through everything can be quite overwhelming. Especially because the H1B visa eligibility requirements can be difficult to meet!

The fierce job competition in the U.S and the ever-growing demand for visas make it even harder. First, you must get hired by a U.S based employer who is willing to sponsor you, which means he has to file your H1B visa application and pay all the necessary fees, in addition to proving that there are no qualified U.S applicant to perform the job.

Not only that, you will also have to meet certain eligibility criteria such as having highly specialized knowledge and expertise in the field and job you are intending to occupy, be a holder of a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent and you can always check  the USCIS official website for more details about eligibility requirements.

Is it advantageous to hire an H1B immigration Attorney?

Since your H1B sponsor, meaning your employer will be responsible for filing your petition and taking care of your filing procedures, he is not required to hire a lawyer.

However, regarding the complexity of the whole process and taking into consideration the continuous changes in U.S rules and regulations when it comes to immigration law, it is advisable to hire an experienced immigration attorney.

By doing so, you will avoid any unnecessary hurdles on your path, make sure all paperwork is handled correctly and have trustworthy, and well-versed professional by your side in case you come cross any difficulties.
