H-1B Cap Season: It's that time of the year when we remind our clients that if there are any new Cap H1 cases to be filed this year, then like last year, this year will be no different.
Last year the H-1B cap ran out on 4/5/13. We filed cases on 4/1/2013 and by 4/5/2013 the H-1B quota was exhausted. Last year the USCIS received 124,000 H1B petitions between 4/1/13 and 4/5/13, against a congressionally capped quota of 65,000 H-1B visas for beneficiaries with Bachelors degrees or higher degrees from non-US universities, plus an additional 20,000 H-1B visas for those possessing Masters Degrees or higher from US-universities. Then the USCIS ran a lottery to pick the lucky 85,000. They actually issued receipt notices on approx. 110,000 cases (expecting that approx 25,000 H-1B petitions would get denied, as per past annual historical trends of cap H-1B petition approvals vs. denials)
This year the targeted is to file all H-1B cap petitions on 3/31/2014 by FEDEX overnight courier for guaranteed delivery on 4/1/2014.
The costs are basically:
(i) USCIS FEE: $2325 (for = or > 25 employees or $1575 for employers with < 25 employees) (*) and
(ii) Attorney Fees: $1500 plus FedEx costs.
(*) Additional USCIS fees: $1225 for Premium Processing and $2000 extra Fee for H-1B Dependent Employers (>50 employees with over 50% on H-1B)
We remind our clients that its time to start working on getting us the details now.
