H-1B Visas still being accepted according the USCIS

H-1B Visas still available

The H-1B Visa cap of 65000 petitions annually has not yet been reached according to the USCIS. Therefore applicants wishing to work in the US under speciality occupations still can file their H-1B Petitions this year. This is good news. Just two years ago before the downturn in the economy, the H-1B Visa cap was filled very close to the April 1 start date.

According to the USCIS, 13500 H-1B Visa Petitions have so far been received. Therefore based on the numbers, there should be enough spaces for the next few months. This means that if you want to still get in for a 2010 start date for work in the US, it would be a good idea to file your H-1B Visa as soon as possible.

H-1B visas are usually for applicants with completed university degrees with job offers in the US under certain specialty occupations (jobs that require a university degree). However, there are some exceptions to this requirement. For applicants without university degrees, if their occupational experience and education can be shown to be otherwise equivalent to a degree, they may be approved for the H-1B Visa.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
