Legal Alert: Act Now to Begin the Application Process for H-1B Visas for FY 2011


Employers who anticipate needing H-1B visas for FY 2011 should be aware that early filing begins April 1, 2010. Although USCIS will not grant H-1B employment to begin until October 1, 2010 (the first day of FY 2011), it will accept applications up to six months prior to this date.

The number of H-1B visas available for FY 2011 is capped at 65,000. It is important to file on or shortly after April 1, in an effort to ensure obtaining a visa. We strongly encourage you to contact Ford & Harrison's Immigration Department as soon as possible if you anticipate needing H-1B visas for FY 2011.

Please see full alert below for more information.
