H-1B for Fiscal Year 2018 opens on April 1, 2017

Published: Tuesday, February 7, 2017

On April 1, USCIS will begin accepting H-1B petitions for an employment start date of October 1, 2017.

If you are planning to add one or more H-1B employees to your staff between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018, you should begin preparations now to ensure that your petitions are filed while visas 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 for employees starting in October can be filed as early as possible.
