H1B Fiscal Year 2018 Filing Date

I have seen a lot of confusion and a lot of readers have asked that why the H1B will be filed this year on April 3rd 2017 and not April 1 2017?

That's because April 1 and April 2 are Saturday and Sunday. The window will Open from April 3 2017 and will close on April 7 2017. All petitions received in this window ( April 3 2017 - April 2017 ) will be accepted and most probably a lottery will be conducted.

Also remember this year premium processing for all Cap Subject H1B's has been suspended. DO NOT - I repeat DO NOT file the form I-907 ( Request for premium processing) .  

     However USCIS will continue to premium process Form I-129 H-1B petitions if the petitioner properly filed an I-907 before April 3, 2017. For these cases, if USCIS does not take adjudicative action on the case within the 15-calendar-day processing period, they will issue a refund.

H1b Visa 2017 Quota

As a lot of readers have asked me this question so I thought of writing a post on it. This is going to be rather a short post in which I will only talk about H1b Visa 2017 Quota.

h1b--visa-quota

Its in the hands of congress and nobody else to increase the cap/quota of h1b visa for fiscal year 2017. But I don't see any change in the quota coming any soon atleast for this year. So the quota numbers will  remain the same as of last year i.e. 65,000 for Regular and 20,000 in advanced quota.
