USCIS has announced that it will begin accepting H-1B petitions subject to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 cap on April 1, 2013. Cases will be considered accepted on the date that USCIS receives a properly filed petition for which the correct fee has been submitted, and not the date that the petition is postmarked.

USCIS has also indicated that it anticipates it may receive more petitions than the H-1B cap between April 1, 2013 and April 5, 2013. The cap for FY 2014 is 65,000. Additionally, the first 20,000 H-1B petitions filed on behalf of individuals with U.S. master’s degree or higher are exempt from the fiscal year cap of 65,000. If USCIS receives more petitions than it can accept, USCIS will use a lottery system to randomly select the number of petitions required to reach the numerical limit.

H1B Premium Processing

USCIS has informed that because of the possibility that the H-1B cap will be met in the first 5 business days of the filing season, it has temporarily adjusted its current premium processing practice, and it will begin premium processing for H-1B cap cases on April 15, 2013.
