Immigration Alert: April 1st Deadline for Filing H-1B Worker Petitions Approaches


We are sending this alert as a reminder of the rapidly approaching April 1, 2010 “deadline” for the filing of H-1B worker petitions for Fiscal Year 2011. Petitions for the new fiscal year will be accepted by the government on April 1st.

As we have informed you in the past, Congress has placed a numerical “cap,” or limit, on H-1B visas. For FY 2011, the limit is 65,000, with an additional 20,000 available for individuals who have earned a U.S. master’s degree or higher.

Please see full alert below for more information.
