USCIS announced on May 11, 2009 that it is still accepting H-1B Visa petitions towards the H-1B cap for FY2010. The Service has still not received enough H-1B petitions to meet the 65,000 cap. The H-1B visa is for professionals in specialty occupations who are seeking entrance to the United States to work in their field of expertise. Such a person must be "clearly professional," meaning that the individual possess either a baccalaureate degree or have amassed the equivalent employment experience or a combination of the two.
Specialty occupations include accountants, lawyers, doctors, engineers, management consultants and systems analysts. You may still be eligible for an H-1B visa! Contact our US Immigration lawyers at 1-800-993-9971 or via the internet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
