Time To Prepare H-1B Visa Petitions For Fiscal Year 2015
This alert is a reminder of the rapidly approaching April 1,
2014 "deadline" for the filing of H-1B visa petitions for
Fiscal Year 2015. Petitions for the new fiscal year, which
starts on October 1, 2014, will be accepted by the
government beginning April 1, 2014. U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services (USCIS) will continue to accept new
H-1B petitions after April 1, 2014, but only until the H-1B
cap is reached. As soon as possible, we encourage you to
identify any employees who may require H-1B sponsorship.
This year we expect the cap to be reached quickly. As a
result of overall economic conditions improving over the
past year, we expect the H-1B cap to be reached as early as
the first week of April. Once the H-1B cap has been reached,
employers will be unable to file new cap-subject H-1B
petitions until April 1, 2015
