H-1B Approval as H1B1 To Be Corrected

We recently received reports that H1B I-797 Approvals are being Noticed as “H1B1” even though the petition is not an H-1B1 for a citizen of Chile or Singapore. USCIS has confirmed this was a now resolved technical error. USCIS is resending corrected H1B I-797 Approval Notices. Notices reflecting the corrected H-1B designation will be mailed this week. Petitioners should expect 10-14 days for receipt. Should there be further news in this regard. We will keep you posted.

Litwin & Smith has an impeccable record of successful H1B filings. We provide H1B petitioners and their sponsored employees a quick turn-around. The H1B is the most often employer sponsored U.S. employment authorization. This H1B petition is subject to the H1B Cap.

The H1B employment visa is limited to 65,000 new H1B visa petitions per year or the H1B Regular Cap and an additional 20,000 H1B visa petitions for the US Masters Cap. The soonest an employer may file an H1B petition is April 1, for an October 1, start date. We begin the H1B petition preparation process in February for the coming April 1 filing. Last year the H1B cap was reached April 1st. You might find out more about the H1B visa on our website.
