2012 H1B Cap Numbers are Still Available

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCSIS), as of October 7, 2011 there are still approximately 24, 900 Cap numbers available for H-1B Cap Subject cases. The Cap continues to fill at a slow pace due to poor economic outlook within the United States. This is great news for companies seeking to employ foreign workers with specialized knowledge and skills. It is also great news for employees that are eligible to fill a specialty occupation. Our office continues to file new H1B petitions on a weekly basis for companies seeking such workers.

One major advantage to the still available H1B Cap numbers is that October 1st has passed. This means that through premium processing USCIS will issues a response within 15 days and the employee will be able to work immediately. Petitions can be filed and approved in a relatively quick time frame, allowing companies to fill their needs quickly. If you need to obtain work authorization or are seeking to employ a foreign worker in a specialty occupation, we can help.
