H1B with Desi companies with Bonds? Should you Care?

H1B with Desi companies with Bonds? Should you Care?

Lots of  Desi consulting companies before filing your H1b , makes you sign some Bond. Some are like below:

1) If you quit within 12 months, pay 15K usd

2) Desi companies may  ask for deposit  for the  whole visa cost, and tell you they  will return back, when you complete couple of months.

3) Also there are Desi companies companies which do not pay you your air ticket, and tell you once u get a project, it will be re-imbursed.

 

All such steps are to protect their profits and investment in your H1B visa. Consulting company spends almost 3000-4000 dollars in your application and filing your h1b and then spend some more money for your air ticket ,accommodation and other expenses until you are placed in the project. And if a consultant quits after finding  a project they tend to loose their money invested on you.

 

All these Bonds will not carry any legal value . As per laws, H1B folks are not to be  bonded and they can work for any company who sponsors/transfers  their H1b. Since people who are coming new to USA on h1B  are not aware of laws and are more keen on getting settled  , Desi consultant companies tend to scare them with legal talks and exploit them.

We would strongly recommend, if you are not happy with your company, quit it, these bonds are meaningless. You can quit and join any company and you are not a bonded labor  .

Desi company can may pester you  to pay bond breakage charges and you can tell them to contact your collection/employment  attorney to discuss the case .And sure none of desi consultancy would like to fight a case .

If you are worried about loosing deposit money, would recommend to forget it. If you have a well paying opportunity job go get it ,its well worth it.

  1. Hi
    I am venkatesh working as mechanical design engineer from Chennai. Currently I am trying for H1b visa but still now can’t able to find trust worthy sponsors. I happen to apply in a consultancy and they are asking to pay 4500$ for the process and if I get selected they will return the full amount back, if not getting selected they will return only 1700$. If I get selected they will help me to find job and after getting job they will take 30% from my salary for 1st 6months and after that 20% for the next 6months. They have sent my the form to be filled for the H1B and asking me to send it along with all other documents (only copies not original) after verifying only they will give the US account number we need to pay the money. Is that the trustable process? Shall I send the document copies and pay the money kindly guide me and reply ASAP. Kindly suggest any trustable consultants or company who sponsoring H1B visa 2016. I have tried all the companies they mention that only for their internal employees not for outsiders and some say they dont sponsors.
