The employer must then file a Form I-129 petition plus accompanying fee of $130 with the BCIS and unless specifically exempted under the law, an additional $1000 fee to sponsor the H1B worker. Once the petition is approved, you are ready for the visa interview. Take online visa appointment at official website for US visa appointment.(www.ustraveldocs.com/in).
