2013 H-1B Visa Cap Closing Soon
June 5, 2012
As of June 1, 2012, approximately 10,000 H-1B visas remain within the fiscal year 2013 H-1B cap. This indicates that the cap will likely be reached within the next few weeks. Employers will then need to wait until April 2013 to file new H-1B visa for an October 1, 2013 start date.
This H-1B cap limitation does not apply to extensions of H-1B status or those obtaining H-1B status to teach at colleges, universities, related nonprofit or government research organizations or J waiver physicians.
If your company has potential new H-1B candidates such as international students in their OPT work authorization period or foreign candidates, please contact us to prepare H-1B petitions for these individuals as soon as possible to secure an available visa.
