As many of you know, H1B Visa quota for this year, which is FY 2015 was completed in the first few days of the start date. USCIS Conducted a lottery to select the required petitions. Overall a total of 172,500 petitions were filed and USCIS had to select only 85,000 petitions. Many of the unlucky ones who were not selected in the FY 2015 quota might be wondering when would the next year H1B Visa season start ?
When does the H1B Visa 2016 filing Season begin ?
Every year USCIS accepts H1B Visa petitions starting from April 1st of that year. If they were to follow the same pattern, they would start accepting the petitions from April 1st of next year. Which is the April 1st of 2015. That seems like a long time, but I guess you need to start planning for the same starting from now…
What is your plan for H1B Visa 2016 ?
