Time to Start Work on Your H-1B Visa Petition
It’s almost time to submit your petition for an H-1B visa for the 2016 fiscal year which begins on October 1, 2016. Applications will be accepted beginning April 1, 2015 until the cap of 65,000 has been met. Employers and prospective employees should begin the process now if they know they will require an H-1B visa. The cap is often met within the first week of April and so it is important to have the application ready to submit prior to that date. If the cap is reached, applicants will have to wait until the following April to resubmit their petition. However, it is also important to note that there is an exemption to the cap for applicants who have obtained a master’s degree from an accredited U.S. institution.
Given the process involved, it is important for anyone who may require an H-1B to begin working on their application as soon as possible. The first step is to understand the eligibility criteria and the documents required, if you are unsure about anything, a consultation with a US immigration attorney is recommended so that your petition does not see any delays or obstructions.

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.
Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
Great firm on top of their game. Worked with us til the end to ensure my parents visa was approved and guided us along the way in a professional manor. Natalie is awesome. Majority of our communications were via email, but the responses were immediate. I would greatly recommend this firm. Thank you for all your hard work and help. My family and I do really appreciate it.
