U.S. employers are expected to file more than 200,000 petitions during the first week of April when USCIS begins accepting H-1B petitions subject to the fiscal year 2018 cap on April 3, 2017

USCIS has developed detailed information, including an optional checklist, Form M-735, Optional Checklist for Form I-129 H-1B Filings, on how to complete and submit an H-1B petition. Please review carefully

Please be aware that USCIS will temporarily suspend premium processing for all H-1B petitions for up to 6 months! USCIS will reject any Form I-907 filed with an H-1B petition. If the petitioner submits one combined check for both the Form I-907 and Form I-129 H-1B fees, they will reject both forms. 

Cases will be considered accepted on the date USCIS takes possession of a properly filed petition with the correct fee. Following are more tips and knowledge about H-1B petition:
