This survey provides context for how the employer immigration function works across various economic sectors and organizational staff sizes.

Here are a few key results:

• U.S. employers spend five times longer on immigration processes than the government estimates.

• The average employer spends $140,192 on U.S. government immigration fees and $210,303 on immigration-related legal fees.

• Only 19 percent of H-1B cap-subject employers agree that there are enough H-1B visas to meet their workforce needs. In other regions of the world, employer satisfaction with visa availability ranges from 52 percent to 74 percent.
