FY 2020 H-1B (2019) Cap Season is Nearly Over

The H-1B Cap Season ends April 1-5, 2019. Last year more than 85,000 H-1B cap petitions were filed within the April 1st filing date. To find out more about the H-1B visa please visit our website.

April 4th is the "must file" date

Please, do not wait to the last minute. A certified LCA is required. The H-1B petition has specific requirements that must be met and supporting documentation must be obtained. In order to file an H-1B petition, a specific professional employee is identified for a specific specialty occupation requiring on specific specialty degree. The H-1B petitions cannot be filed, with a name to be entered at a later date.

Let us guide you to ensure your petition will be successful!

The H-1B positions offered to foreign national employees require attestations regarding, job duties, worksite, wage, technologies, source code, and technical data made available to the employee. Start-ups, small businesses, and consulting companies require additional documentation above the standard H-1B petition.

Act now before it is too late

We need at least five working days in order to prepare and obtain a certified Labor Condition Application (LCA) from the Department of Labor (DOL) before we can file the H-1B petition. Towards April 1st the Department of Labor gets extremely busy and the timeframe for an approved LCA has been longer. First-time employers take even longer.
