2013 H-1B Visa Season: Start Early to Avoid the Rush

On April 1, 2013 the US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) will begin accepting cap-subject H-1B visa petitions.  H-1B petitions should be filed by April 1, 2013 for an October 1, 2013 start date.  Only a certain amount of cap-subject H-1Bs are available each year.  Due to improvements in the economy and the speed at which the cap was filled last year, it is wise for employers to start preparing H-1Bs as early as possible to assure an April 1, 2013 filing.

H-1Bs require considerable preparation.  Attorneys at Becker & Lee LLP have already started working on H-1B visa petitions that will be filed on April 1, 2013.  In order to avoid rushed filings, we suggest starting as soon as possible.

For more information about the H-1B requirements contact an attorney at Becker & Lee LLP at info@BLimmigration.com or (415) 863-3910.
