USCIS REACHES FY 2011 H-1B CAP - Atlanta Immigration lawyer | Best immigration lawyers Atlanta

USCIS just announced that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap for fiscal year (FY) 2011. January 26, 2011, is the final receipt date for new H-1B specialty occupation petitions requesting an employment start date in FY2011.
USCIS will reject cap-subject petitions for new H-1B workers in FY2011 that arrive after Jan. 26, 2011. USCIS will apply a computer-generated random selection process to all petitions that are subject to the cap and were received on January 26, 2011 in order to select petitions needed to meet the cap. USCIS will reject all remaining cap-subject petitions not randomly selected and will return the accompanying filing fees.
Too bad… we were hoping for a few more days’ leeway but that’s out of anyone’s control.
