The H-1B quota for 2012 (10/1/2011 – 9/30/2012) was met on November 22, 2011. Although most immigration practitioners knew it was coming, it was still a disappointment to hear this news – particularly because it was given the day AFTER it happened. So, as in years past, we are again messengers of a frustrating policy to U.S. employers eager to issue job offers to foreign nationals.

Fortunately, there are some exemptions to the cap. These should be kept in mind when strategizing a case, as it means an employer could file even after the quota has been met.

This article summarizes immigration options other than the H-1B visa.
