H-1B Cap Has Been Reached for FY 2018

By Elizabeth Coonan

H-1B visas are used by many U.S. employers to supplement their workforce with highly-skilled foreign workers.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that it has reached the congressionally mandated 65,000 visa H-1B cap for fiscal year 2018. USCIS also received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to meet the 20,000 visa master’s cap. The agency has indicated it will reject and return filing fees for all unselected cap-subject petitions that are not duplicate filings and will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. If you have questions about the H-1B process, contact BrownWinick's immigration lawyers, Elizabeth Coonan or Corrin Hatala
