Our colleagues in Epstein Becker Green’s Immigration Law Group recently published a special client alert: “USCIS Announces That the Congressionally Mandated H-1B Cap for Fiscal Year 2017 Has Been Reached.”
Following is an excerpt:
On April 7, 2016, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) announced that it had reached the Congressionally mandated H-1B cap for fiscal year 2017 (“FY17”). This announcement applies to both the general cap of 65,000 and the additional cap of 20,000 for those with advanced degrees from U.S. universities.
