On April 1st U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) will start accepting H-1B petitions subject to the fiscal year (FY) 2014 H-1B cap. Late last week CIS advised that it anticipates that the H-1B cap could be reached very early this year, possibly within the first five business days that filings are accepted, triggering an H-1B lottery from all petitions received during the first five days (April 1 – April 5). CIS will return the petition and all filing fees if an H-1B visa number is not allocated to the petition.
