2014 H-1B Visas: Employers Need to Note Upcoming Application Dates

Employers may first apply for 2014 H-1B visas for individuals not currently in H-1B status on April 1, 2013 with a start date of October 1, 2013. The 2013 H-1B visa cap was reached on June 11, 2012 and this year we expect the cap to be reached within the first few weeks applications are accepted. 

This H-1B cap limitation does not apply to extensions of H-1B status or those obtaining H-1B status to teach at colleges, universities, related nonprofit or government research organizations or J waiver physicians. If your company has potential H-1B candidates working on post-education employment authorization that will expire prior to October 1, 2014, please be aware of these dates.
