New H-1B Petitions Need to be Filed on April 1, 2015

The supply of H-1B visas is limited. Once the annual cap is reached, employers must wait another year – until October 1, 2016 – to get new H-1B workers approved.

Using H-1B, U.S. employers can hire foreign professional workers for up to six years. Each year, 65,000 new H-1B visas are available for those with bachelor’s degrees, and 20,000 more are reserved for those with a master’s degree or higher from a U.S. university.

If you want MSEC assistance for an H-1B this year, contact us now!

Employers who want to hire a foreign professional worker already on H-1B or certain employers who are exempt from the H-1B cap can call MSEC anytime. The rest need to call now!
