H-1B for Fiscal Year 2019 opens on April 2nd, 2018

On April 2nd, USCIS will begin accepting H-1B petitions for an employment start date of October 1, 2018.

If you are planning to add one or more H-1B employees to your staff between October 1, 2018 and September 30, 2019, you should begin preparations now to ensure that your petitions are filed while visa numbers still remain. Timing is especially critical if you currently employ J-1 trainees or F-1 students on OPT who need to move to H-1B status in order to continue their legal employment with you.

It takes knowledge, expertise and painstaking effort to prepare high-quality H-1B petitions with all of the accompanying evidence that USCIS is now looking for. With a strong, well-established H-1B practice, Immigration Law Associates is your ideal partner for facing today’s H-1B challenge and getting the approvals you need to keep your business growing. Call us at (847) 763-8500 now to ensure that your H-1B petitions can be filed as early as possible.
