US employers wishing to hire an overseas worker for temporary skilled work under an H1B visa will now typically expect to pay $1110 instead of $610 (including the usual INS fee). The Senate just passed the bill to increase the costs of H1Bs yesterday. The new fees come into effect two months after the enactment of the Act. Employers who plan to apply for the H1B work visa may wish to consider applying soon to avoid paying the new fees.
