Frequently Asked Questions

H1 Base Work Visa Sponsorship Programs and Services:
For your convenience, below we have listed some of the most frequently asked questions and answers about our services. If you still have any questions that we have not addressed below, please contact our support representatives who will help you.  

I currently live outside the USA, can I use your services ?
Yes, we have helped people living in over 130 Countries.  

I am currently in the USA on a different visa and want to change to an H1B visa, can I use your services ? 
Yes, we have successfully helped people change status (transfer) from F1, OPT, L1, J1, H4, B1/2, H2B, to H1B visa status.  

What locations do you have H1B Sponsors/Employer companies in ?
We have over 20,000 H1B sponsor companies throught the USA, in all major Cities and States. 

Do you work with and have 'end-client' sponsor companies, or is it agencies?
We always make every effort to help you obtain jobs with end-client companies. We try to avoid jobs and sponsorship in agencies for contract type projects because it provides less job security and visa status safety, compared to working and being sponsored directly by an end-client company. Many agencies also have extra restrictions on being able to sponsor for H1B visas, and for these 2 main reasons we always make every effort to work with direct and end client sponsor companies only.  

Can I choose any City or State that I want to work in ?
Yes, you can choose any single (or multiple) locations. One thing to consider is that the narrower and more limitations for your job search parameters typically means that it may take a bit longer. Whenever possible, we try to recommend as broad and wide a search as possible to achieve the best and quickest results.

Can I choose what Job I want and what company I want to work for ?
Yes, the decision is 100% yours. You choose to accept employment with the company you want, in the location you want.

The US employer / sponsoring company (US employer) is required to pay the visa processing fees to the USCIS.

For our services No. However, although many of sponsor companies pay for full relocation costs, some companies may pay part, and some companies may ask you to cover your own relocation costs

For your safety and ours, we do not accept cash payments, and we do not advise sending cash in the mail for any purchases from any company

What happens after I register for a service ?
You will receive a purchase receipt by email, and, you will be contacted by H1 Base within a few minutes of registering. Pro Elite Premium Plus members will also be contacted and welcomed by their assigned personal counselor.

How long does it take to get a sponsorship job ?  
The time it takes to secure a sponsorship job depends on a number of factors which include the level of your skills & experience and/or education, if you have any specific location preferences, or if your open to working in any location, – and what companies, and how many companies have suitable job openings that match your experience at the time they receive your resume. The speed also depends on the level of service: the higher the service level, the faster it is.

Why do the top H1B sponsors and employers recruit from H1 Base ?
H1 Base saves employers valuable time, effort and money. We do not charge H1B Sponsors/Employers recruitment, placement or consulting fees. This typically Saves them thousands of dollars compared to recruiting people from many other companies or sources, and therefore incentivizes them to hire qualified and pre-screened candidates from H1 Base.  

Can we guarantee that every customer will secure a Visa sponsorship ?
Our Premium Services help you improve and optimize many important areas of the complete visa sponsorship search including your resume, search, placement, salary, interview, immigration guidance, to ensure you get the best results and the maximum opportunity of success. The individual and personal factors involved for each customer can vary greatly, which can affect the duration for success for each individual customer. Because of all the different factors involved throughout the process, and for each individual customer, we can not offer a guarantee. However, with our ProELITE Premium Service we do assure you that we will continue working for you until you secure a job & start work in the USA, no matter what your situation or what personal factors or preferences are involved, we keep working for you until we all get successful and positive results (without charging any additional service fees). 

How long does the service last for ?
PowerSearch gives you unlimited access to all the services in your account for you to use for a period of six months

H1B Announce Premium gives you unlimited access to all the services in your account, and we will submit your resume to potential employers once a months for a period of up to six months

Pro Elite Premium Plus continues and lasts until we successfully get you H1B visa sponsorship and / or Green Card Sponsorship of your choice

If I don’t find a job that I want after you apply to companies the first time, will you keep applying for me ?
YES, H1 Base has a research department who make all efforts to add new companies each month, plus new employer companies who are recruiting, can register with H1 Base. However, we do typically send your resume to many of the same companies each month and there are a number of strategic reasons why, that include: ~ every company has a turnover in staff --- therefore, even if your resume is sent to the same company, it does Not necessarily mean that it has been sent to the same “person” (your resume may be sent to different hiring managers, recruiters or appropriate people each month).~ with both US recruitment in general and specifically H1B recruitment -- there are peaks and troughs depending on the time of year and also the H1B Program legislation and restrictions. By sending customers resumes every month it helps to ensure your resume reaches companies during both the troughs and the peaks.~ some companies may not be recruiting or have any job openings one month -- however, they may have planned and start recruiting for new jobs the following month etc

What's the difference between H1B Announce Premium and Pro Elite Premium Plus ?
Pro Elite Premium Plus is the maximum assistance program that is more personalized and tailored to each individual customers needs and preferences. It is primarily designed for customers that are overseas who want us to conduct a strategic, proactive and focused search on their behalf, and/or for customers who want (or need) the fastest possible results.

Four of the most important differences are that:

1) Pro Elite customers enjoy the added benefits of working one-to-one with a personal visa sponsorship counselor and career advisor who guides you through the entire USA emigration and H1B visa sponsorship process from start to finish.

2) Pro Elite includes a professional resume improvement and optimization services to make sure your resume is perfect and gets you considered for better sponsorship job opportunities.

3) Pro Elite has the added advantage of being able to send your resume to two separate groups of H1B visa and Green Card sponsor companies (approx 1,000), and, the advantage of being able to send to two separate profession groups. This can help to make it twice as fast, generates twice the opportunity, and makes it the most successful service available.

4) Pro Elite provides the highest priority personalized service and support
