The wait is finally coming to an end!
USCIS will begin accepting H1B petitions subject to the FY 2018 cap on April 1, 2017.
We've put together line-by-line instructions to prepare and assemble the 2018 H1B cap petitions. Following these guidelines will help you avoid delays and increase the chances of lottery selection and approvals.
Employers filing an H1B cap 2018 petition must make sure:
VisaPro is anticipating that that the H1B cap will be met in the first 5 business days of the filing season, and USCIS will receive more than enough petitions to reach both caps by April 7. USCIS will use a random selection process (H1B Lottery) to select the number of petitions required to reach the numerical limit.
It is therefore important to remember that it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that Form I-129 is completed accurately and submitted properly, in order to stand a chance in being considered for the H1B lottery.
If you have questions at any point when preparing and filing your 2018 H1B Cap cases, please call us at 202-787-1944. Our experienced immigration lawyers will be happy to assist you.
