That why at first place you need to have a Bachelor’s degree or some higher education with a specific set of unique skills that are in demand. Calculation of actual wages is confirmed by the State Employment Security Agency. Wage determination will be sought if there is a difference between the prevailing wage and offer made by the employer. It can be done online or can request to the Department of Labor’s National Prevailing Wage Center. This whole procedure will be done in 3 weeks or so.

Processing costs must be paid to the USCIS by the employer.
