The AILA VSC liaison committee has been informed that the Vermont Service Center is doing its final push to adjudicate all pending FY2013 H-1B cap petitions. The VSC expects to action (i.e. issue approvals, denials, or RFEs) all remaining H petitions for F-1 beneficiaries with cap-gap authorization before the end of September 2012. VSC estimates there are 100 pending H-1B petitions for cap-gap beneficiaries. Approximately 10,000 H-1B cap petitions also remain pending, and VSC anticipates issuing notices of approval, denial, or RFEs for each of these cases by the second week in October.
