Training Overview

Does your organization need H1-B visas? The 2021 cycle is starting—be ready to sponsor applications.

The H-1B visa enables American employers to hire skilled and well-educated international workers. In June 2020, a presidential proclamation curtailed new H-1B visas through the remainder of the calendar year.

The US Customs and Immigration Service is moving ahead with plans for a fresh round of H-1B visas for the federal fiscal year commencing October 1. To hire employees from outside the United States, you need to be on top of the 2021 cycle.
