Me. Im applying for h1b. But how and where do we start? I'm waiting for the program to contact me. Or should we initiate to contact them? I'll probably mention it when I send the program thank you letter on Monday. A friend told me we need to get our own lawyer in the US. Processing of h1b cost about 2K USD. Need to be expedited so a bit more expensive 'coz we have too little time to process the visa until the start of our residency!

Any inputs?

I'm also going for the H1B. Thankfully, my hospital pays for the H1B processing and they have their own lawyer so I don't need to bother with this part. They already sent me a congratulatory letter last Friday but haven't mentioned anything about visa processing. I wonder when are they gonna start the visa processing as I heard this process takes a while.

Fortunately, the program secretary contacted me friday and they will pay the lawyer and everything, I just need to pay for it to be expedited.. The problem is that I took my Step3 on march 5th-6th and the results will be out only this wednesday I hope..
