My client is a global marketing and branding company and
filed a H-1B petition for a position of an Interior Designer. The H-1B registration was selected in the
H-1B lottery. The Client was very
cooperative and provided all documents necessary to show to the USCIS
satisfaction that the Interior Designer is a specialty occupation according to
the regulations. In this case, the Petitioner (Client) normally requires a degree
or its equivalent for the position and a baccalaureate or higher degree or its
equivalent is normally the minimum
requirement for entry into the position of the Interior Designer. The position
of the Interior Designer is also so complex
that it can be performed only by an individual with a degree.
The client provided documents related to the position and showing that the Beneficiary (Employee) meets the requirements for the position. The Beneficiary has a Master of Interior Architecture and has been working for the Client as a junior Interior Designer on her OPT. My client was very happy to receive the approval just in 3 weeks, especially for entry level position. Congratulations!

Our client imports salt lamps and other products from his country. We applied for premium processing of the change of his status and his case was approved in 13 days.
In order to obtain E-1 visa or status, the following has to be established: (i) a treaty exists; (ii) the individual or business possesses the nationality of the treaty country; (iii) the activities the foreign national will engage in constitute trade; (iv) the trade is substantial; (v) the trade is principally between the US and the treaty country; and (vi) the foreign national intends to depart the US when the E-1 status terminates.
In this case, our client’s country has a treaty with the US. The import of such product constitute trade. He imports the product only from his country, so the trade is principally between the US and his country and the trade is “substantial”. “Substantial” means an amount of trade sufficient to ensure a continuous flow of international trade between the US and his country. Our client has already shipped three containers of the product to the US, has relationships established and plans to shipped future regular shipments, so we were able to show that the trade is substantial.
