Making the H-1B Visa Quota - Impact of the Early Cut-off

What Is the Impact of the Early Cut-off for H-1B Visas?

After the H1-B cap is reached, private employers cannot hire new temporary professional workers in H1-B status for the 2009 fiscal year. Last year, the USCIS advised that it would return all H-1B petitions for first-time employment filed after April 2, 2007. For those employers in need of hiring temporary professional foreign workers after the H1-B cap is reached, there may be alternative options available.
