H-1B Petitions to be Accepted begining April 1, 2009 for Fiscal Year 2010

leave a comment »

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has clarified that it will begin accepting the H-1B petitions to the fiscal year (FY) 2010 cap on April 1, 2009, which means that the petition will be considered accepted on the date the USCIS takes possession of the petition, not the date that the petition is postmarked.  Make sure you send the H-1B petition(s) before April 1, 2009 and certainly by Monday March 31st, 2009 at the very latest.

Typically, the USCIS will monitor the number of H-1B petitions received and notify the public of the date the USCIS has received the necessary number of petitions to meet the H-1B cap, known as the “final receipt date”. H-1B Petitions for the FY 2010, have a 65,000 numerical limitation for a start date of Oct. 1, 2009.
