Fees for U.S. Worker Training and Fraud Prevention
As a small company with 15 employees, we plan to hire a recent college graduate with our sponsorship for H-1B visa. What are the fees we need to pay for the H-1B application?
The American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act (ACWIA) established what is commonly referred to as the "training fee." This fee is currently set at a level of $1500 for companies with more than 25 employees; the fee is reduced to $750 for companies with 25 employees or fewer. This payment must accompany with the H-1B petition. The amount collected is used for funding training and scholarships for U.S. workers.
Also, the L-1 and H-1B Visa Reform Act established a $500 fee to be utilized for fraud prevention and detection. This fee must be paid with the initial H-1B or L-1 petition filed by an employer.
