The H-1B cap requires that all H-1B petitions are received at the USCIS’ California Service Center or Vermont Service Center by Friday April 7, 2015.  Below are some key points to keep in mind about this year’s H-1B cap:

-The USCIS makes no accommodation for delays caused by couriers.  Accordingly, MU Law will file the vast majority of its H-1B petitions on March 31 for delivery by April 3, which is the first day that H-1B petitions are accepted.

-Premium Processing Service (PPS) has been suspended, starting April 3, 2017.  The suspension may last for six months.  The suspension includes all H-1B petition filings, such as H-1B cap cases, H-1B amendments, H-1B transfers, and H-1B extensions.

-In 2016, H-1B lottery results were not finalized until June.  It may even take the USCIS longer than in past years to notify all H-1B cap winners and losers.
