Sample Employment Verification Letter for H1B Stamping

As part of applying for US Visa stamping at a Consulate or Embassy, based on your H1B approval from USCIS, you would need to carry a certain set of documents related to your employment. An employment verification letter is one of those key documents that is needed for H1B visa stamping to indicate that you are being employed by the company.

Any Official Format for Employment Verification Letter?

Firstly, an “Employment verification letter” is also referred to as an “Employment Confirmation Letter”, “Employment Certification Letter”, or ” Applicant’s Position Confirmation letter”. You might see these terms listed or used interchangeably by many, including US Visa Stamping Appointment Letter.

Now, coming to the format of the employment verification letter, it is very subjective and depends on the company. There is no official format given by the US Consulates or Embassies indicating that the employment verification letter has to be in a certain format.

The key information that needs to be in the employment verification letter is listed below :

  • Name of the H1B Applicant
  • Passport Number of the H1B Applicant
  • Status of Employment with the company with a start date.
  • Designation/ Position Details of the H1B applicant
  • Salary of the H1B Applicant [ This is optional, some indicate this, some do not]
  • Printed on the company letterhead
  • Signed by the HR Manager or someone who has the authority to sign

Below is the structure and a couple of samples that are given by a few companies.
