USCIS Reached FY2010 H-1b Visa Cap
USCIS reached FY2010 65,000 H-1b visa cap on December 21, 2009.
USCIS reached FY2010 65,000 H-1b visa cap on December 21, 2009. This means that qualified holders on Bachelor's and higher degrees that have job offers from US employers and would like to start working in the US in 2010 would have to wait until April 1, 2010 when FY2011 quota will open up to submit their H-1b visa application. These applicants should be aware that careful preparation of an H-1b petition is a time-consuming task that requires significant effort on both applicant and applicant’s attorney side. We recommend potential H-1b visa applicants to retain an immigration lawyer to work on their petition in January 2010 or February 2010 to ensure that their application is timely filed.
