Administration Raises the Bar on H-1B Eligibility

Updated: Jan 14, 2021

The Administration is publishing rules that will change the computation of prevailing wage levels, the effect of which will make it more difficult for foreign nationals to obtain H-1B visas. 

More specifically, USCIS and DOL are publishing interim final rules that will raise the prevailing wages for all occupations for each OES-based wage level. The net effect will be that foreign nationals hoping to apply for H-1B visas will need to have job offers with greater remuneration than was previously needed to obtain an H-1B visa.
