When Immigration Matters

H-1B Visa Season is upon us. Are you ready to file by April 1, 2018?

Posted by Karen-Lee Pollak on Tue, Feb 13, 2018 @ 9:48 PM

On April 1, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) begins accepting H-1B visa applications for the 2019 fiscal year (which starts on October 1, 2018). Last year, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) received in excess of 200,000 petitions during the five-day filing period and as in past years conducted a random lottery to select the 85,000 petitions that would be eligible for processing. 20,000 of those visas are reserved for Beneficiaries with a Master degree from a U.S. University. We expect that there will be just as many applications this year. During FY 2019, cases will be considered accepted on the date that USCIS takes possession of the petition, as opposed to the date it was postmarked.
