We are sending this alert as a last reminder of the rapidly approaching April 1, 2009 “deadline” for the filing of H-1B worker petitions. Petitions must be mailed on March 31st for April 1st delivery.
As we have informed you in the past, Congress has placed a numerical “cap,” or limit, on H-1B visas of 58,200 each fiscal year, with an additional 20,000 reserved for applicants holding U.S. master’s degrees or higher.
In each of the last several years, the cap has been exhausted in the first few days of April, and despite the current down economy, we predict this year’s H-1B quota (FY 2010) to be exhausted soon after the April 1, 2009 opening day for filing H-1B petitions.
Please see full alert for more information.
