As a follow-up to my previous post regarding the 2013 fiscal year H-1B cap, as of April 27th, 29,200 of the 65,000 H-1B visas available to bachelor’s degree professionals have been allocated and 12,300 of the available 20,000 H-1B’s for master’s degree professionals have been issued. Though this application rate is always unpredictable, FY 2013 is especially active and if the trend continues, the cap will be reached much sooner than it was in recent years. It is recommended that employers continue to file H-1B cap-subject petitions for Fiscal Year 2013 as soon as possible. To read more, click here.
