H-1 and L-1 Fees Increased with New Bill
Last week, the President signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 which provides full-year appropriations through September 2016 for all government agencies. Included in this bill are fee increases for certain L-1 and H-1B petitions for companies with more than 50 employees where 50% or more of the employees hold H-1B or L-1 status. Supplemental L-1 fees for these companies increase from $2,250 to $4,500 and supplemental H-1B fees increase from $2,000 to $4,000.
