H-1B Approval For Chef From Japan
Recently, we extended our track record of gaining H-1B approvals for restaurant workers in a case on behalf of a Japanese Restaurant. These approvals must show that the position requires a bachelor's degree, or that the duties are extremely complex and specialized. At times, it can be difficult to persuade the Immigration Service that a chef fills the requirements necessary. In this case, we are able to show the beneficiary was going to function as an Executive Chef, a managerial level which meets the H-1B requirements.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a violinist whose non-profit employer did not have the budget to pay the required filing fees to support her H-1B visa extension. However, when we examined her resume and interviewed her, we saw that perhaps she had the elements for an approvable O-1 “Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts” case.
