The Top 100 Companies That Sponsored US Visas

We mentioned in many posts how there is a list out there, sometimes difficult to find on the DOL (Department of Labor) site, but is freely available showing who are the companies that employed H-1B holders last year.

Of course this list is just as relevant to E-3 visa holders and even L-1 or J-1 Interns as they show the companies willing in large numbers to hire foreigners and more open to the sponsorship process.

There is do freely available list I am aware of for E-3 visas (they may for all I know lump into this list).

There is also no list for L-1 I am aware of and reportedly somewhere in the vicinity of 400,000 annually come on this visa in recent times. (there is no quota for L-1). However as this is an internal company transfer for multi-national companies that you have to be working at for at least 1 year, I am sure the companies you work for and apply to should be able to tell you more about transfer opportunities down the track to the US.

This list of course changes from year to year but the majority of companies you will see will consistently employ large numbers of foreigners and sponsor a lot of visas. Over the next few days we will reveal more of the list including tips for applying to the different types of companies on the list and the sectors they are in.

You will notice that this Top 100 is dominated, no unexpectedly, by companies in the IT sector. As that for many years has been where the shortage of US talent has been. Thus many people from India in the last decade especially have dominated the ranks of the H-1B visa approvals.

There are also a lot of academic institutions in this list as well which interesting because many of these organizations despite sponsoring a lot of visas will not have them counted in 65,000 quota!
This is of course great information for you when applying there as your chances improve greatly of securing your visa if offered a position so you are not competing against other applicants.

(to note many but not all non-profit, government and academic institutions do not have a quota binding them as the private instituitions do with 65,000 (+20,000 ADE) quota.

This is exactly what I was talking about when denouncing sites like H1Base as worthless and bordering on SCAM sites as they will send you this same list as part of their package as a major item. The only difference between them and me is they will charge you hundreds of dollars for it.

The full list actually contains close to 25,000 companies for last year so there are plenty of options just from the current batch of visa hiring pool from last year. However as mentioned in my recent guest author post about H-1 Visa Quota Predictions and the necessity to get your application in on April 1.

Ok without further delay here are the Top 100 US Visa Sponsoring Organizations from last year.

  1. The NIH employed more than 300 H-1B workers during the federal government’s 2006 fiscal year, prompting Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to ask in a letter to NIH officials why a federal agency is hiring foreign workers with temporary visas.

    Grassley, a member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary and a leading critic of the H-1B visa program, today also fired off a letter with a similar set of questions to the Federal National Mortgage Association, also known as Fannie Mae. The Washington-based lender began as a government agency before becoming a private business that operates under a congressional charter.

    During fiscal 2006, which ended in September of last year, the NIH “hired or otherwise employed” 322 people through the H-1B visa program, according to Grassley. Fannie Mae had 141 H-1B workers during the same period, he wrote. Grassley said in a statement that the NIH and Fannie Mae were the only federal or government-chartered entities among the top 200 users of H-1B visas in fiscal 2006, with the NIH making the top 100.

  2. First of all,I would say Verinon Technology Solutions is a Fraud Company.There is HR named Samuel Devaraj,who doesnt pick your phone calls.And there is the president Pradeep Reddy who wont come to main picture.
    And there is a marketing head Raj Reddy who doesnt speak english properly.In order to tax evasion they have three more branches in the name of KIP,IVYTECH & Cquent.

    KIP is headed by Rajesh and he is also a big fraud(We will talk about him latter)

    They doesnt pay your salary properly.They are blood suckers who will eat every bit of your money.I think recently there is an DOL investigation going on about this company.They wont pay you in bench and there will be no communication between the company and employee.They treat the employees as slaves.My heart is burning when I write abou this company.This company did not paid me for the past 3 months and not showing any remorse.

    I would like to teach a lesson on this company.What can I do.But they are saying we have very good attorneys,So you cant do us anything.

    They charge all employess for their H1B Fees and never return back

  3. Need immediately and will refund you for you efforts. Need L1 blanket permit (I-129 listing I believe for the state of Florida, years 2003, 2004 & 2005 (more important 2004 & 2005) This would include business name with amount of workers brought into Florida. Please contact me @ eridge1@verizon.net

  5. Hi Nani,
    I doubt any of the top employers for the H1B visa would be in the hospitality industry. Most of them are hi-tech and professional services type roles.

If not, then is there any list for such people ( who doesn’t hold any legal documents). Please inform me via email : shahriyar.garibov(at)gmail.com

  13. Shahriyar given this a list derived from US Government official records, a list of employers where the employment was not fully legal would only ever come from unofficial sources with unknown reliability.
