First Week of H-1B Visa Season: Number of Applications Doubled Compared to Same Period Last Year

April 11, 2012  |  One Comment  |  by admin  |  Blog

USCIS reports that the number of filings received in the first week of the H-1B visa season is double the number of filings received during the same period last year. As of April 9, 2012, approximately 17,400 H-1B cap-subject petitions were receipted by USCIS. Additionally, USCIS has receipted 8,200 H-1B petitions for aliens with advanced degrees.  It is fairly safe to assume that H-1B visa quota for FY2013 would not remain open for long and might very well close around June 2012 or early July 2012.  Eligible foreign workers and their US employers are advised to immediately contact H-1B visa lawyer while FY2013 H-1B visa quota is still open!
