Last Call for Cap-Subject H-1B Cases

06. Mar. 2019

To ensure ILG clients’ cap-subject H-1B cases are timely filed, we ask that all clients inform ILG of all cap-subject H-1B cases no later than Wednesday, March 13th.  If you have already contacted ILG about the H-1B cap cases you wish to file this year, no further action is necessary.

If you have a list of the employees you wish to file for but have not provided it to ILG, please send your list to ILG now and you may add to the list up to and through March 13th.

Background: USCIS will begin accepting cap-subject H-1B petitions on April 1, 2019.  It is nearly certain that all cap-subject H-1Bs for the entire year will be fully-subscribed by the fifth business days of April, as it has been in each of the last 6 years.  If so, all cases received during the first 5 business days of April will undergo a random selection process (“H-1B lottery”) to determine which cases will be processed and which will be returned.
