USCIS will begin accepting H1B petitions that are subject to the FY 2017 cap on April 1, 2016.
Don’t forget, MVP Law Group has been accepting cap-subject H1B cases since the beginning of February 2016. Although FY 2017 cap-subject cases cannot be filed before April 1st, there is work to be done preparing a good case for filing. All of this work must be done in advance, so that the H1B petition package can be filed as early as permitted under the law. By beginning early, it is possible to avoid some of the rush and panic that inevitably sets in right before April 1st and lasts until the cap is reached. With the U.S. economy improved and the history of the H1B cap, this could prove to be a short filing season. Contact MVP Law Group and let’s get started!
Note: The H-1B cap for FY2016 was reached by April 7, 2015!
