Companies are adopting a more holistic approach to their immigration programs to implement new and efficient ways to attract and retain foreign talent. Immigration is no longer a transaction business operation, but rather a component of talent acquisition.

But how much does immigration actually cost? What are the costs associated with popular employment-based visas, such as the H-1B, L-1 and O-1? Additionally, who pays for these costs? Reporting plays a big role in how these companies budget and plan for the future.

About this Webinar

In this 45-minute webinar, Envoy Global and its affiliated law firm, Global Immigration Associates, will discuss the dollar costs of immigration for employers. Attendees will learn about average costs for visas, who pays for certain steps of the process and how technology can provide more insights to help craft a budget.
