H-2B Visa Cap Update

Posted by pbsweeney on December 8, 2006

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced yesterday that it has received a sufficient number of petitions to reach the congressionally mandated 33,000 H-2B visa cap for the first six months of Fiscal Year 2007. According to the USCIS, petitions for H-2B workers who enter after April 1, 2007, will continue to be processed, until a “final receipt date” is announced.

Companies who need to bring workers in before April are out of luck unless they are returning workers. It’s extremely important to motivate clients to start early and use premium processing!
