H-1B Quota Update

November 14, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced recently that it received 53,200 H-1B petitions for the current fiscal year.  This means only about 5,000 visas are available of the total 58,200 (Chile and Singapore quota excluded).  The advanced degree holders quota of 20,000 already reached the cap.  If an H-1B petition is not filed while the quota is still available, (for-profit) employers will have to wait until April 1, 2010 to file fresh H-1B petitions on behalf of individuals and such employment cannot start earlier than October 1, 2010.UTY67PMTQKZD
