Time For H-1B Again

The H-1B is a non-immigrant visa category in the United States which allows U.S. employers to employ foreign guest workers in specialty occupations.

Last year, the H-1B cap (65,000) was reached on the very first day. USCIS has to draw a lottery to determine which petitions would be selected for review and approval. The H-1B cap for individuals with a US Master degree (20,000) was reached on May 1, 2008, one month after the earliest date people can file the petition.

It is highly recommend that employers and employees get ready NOW so that the H-1B petition can be filed on the April 1, 2009.

Note: Not all cases are subject to the cap. H-1B Petitions that are “cap exempt” may be filed at any time during the year.
