On April 1, 2011, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting H-1B applications for applicants starting professional employment on October 1, 2011 or later.  Although last year’s cap was only exhausted in January 2011, there is always the possibility that as the economy picks up, the H-1B cap could be met and exceeded well before January 2012.  Also remember that the H-1B Application must be filed with a certified Labor Condition Application.  The Department of Labor is currently taking 7 days to certify those applications where they have not asked for additional information.
