USCIS will start accepting cap-subject H1B Visa petitions for fiscal year 2013 on April 1, 2012. Cases will be considered accepted on the date USCIS receives a properly filed petition, not the date that the petition is postmarked. 

U.S. employers use the H1B Visa program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations that require theoretical or technical expertise. The cap for fiscal year 2013 is 65,000. The first 20,000 petitions filed on behalf of individuals with U.S. master’s degrees or higher are exempt from the cap. To know more about H1B Visa filing procedures and fees, please click here to visit H1B Visa section. 

If you already have a job offer, and the employer is willing to sponsor H1B Visa for you, pleasecheck the employer's H1B visa and green card petitions history. You want to make sure your employer has good records. 

If you are still looking for visa sponsors, please concentrate on the employers that have sponsored H1B Visa in recent years, especially those who have filed H-1B Visa petitions during the first 3 months of 2012. 

Your customized H1B Visa Solution will be updated once every three months, based on newly uploaded H1B Visa and Green Card data. You will also get a new solution every time you update your career profile. Log in now to get your most recent version of employer recommendation list!
