U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that it has received enough H-1B petitions to meet the congressionally mandated cap for fiscal year 2008 (FY 2008). As of late Monday afternoon (April 2), USCIS had received approximately 150,000 cap-subject H-1B petitions. Therefore no new H-1B petitions for FY2008 will be accepted as of Wednesday, April 4.
If you have any questions regarding an H-1B petition filed by Moore & Van Allen or if you would like to discuss alternative strategies for any employee currently subject to the H-1B cap, please feel free to contact us.
