Is My Company Eligible to Sponsor an H1B Visa?

Is it only large corporations that can sponsor h1b visa employees, or can my small to mid-sized company sponsor h1b visa employees as well?

Many believe that small companies cannot successfully petition for H1B visas. However, even though small or startup companies often do not have as much business activity or revenues to show as compared to more established businesses, it is still highly possible for these companies to obtain H1B visa approvals as long as all other H1B requirements are met.

Generally, smaller companies will need to submit additional documentation proving that they are legitimate, financially solid companies capable of paying the potential H1B visa employee’s wages. It is important to look at the totality of the circumstances and submit evidence accordingly.

I would not let being a small company dissuade you from sponsoring an H1B employee.
