FosterQuan Immigration Update - USCIS Announces the H-1B Cap Has Been Reached


On January 27, 2011, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (CIS) announced that the CIS had received enough H-1B petitions to exhaust the H-1B quota for Fiscal Year 2011. New cap-subject H-1B petitions may be filed beginning April 1, 2011, with a requested H-1B employment start date of October 1, 2011. The Update also describes types of H-1B cases that may continue to be filed without regard to this limitation or time period.

For more information regarding potential alternatives to H-1B classification, contact your FosterQuan Immigration Attorney. Your FosterQuan Immigration Attorney will be happy to assist you in determining whether a beneficiary may qualify under one of these nonimmigrant classifications and can assist you in developing an appropriate case strategy for collecting the information and documentation required to proceed
