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.

I hope the above information helps. If you have something to add tit , do leave a comment below. Don't forget to like our facebook page for latest updates. Also follow us on Twitter.
