The federal government will begin accepting the filing of H-1B worker petitions for fiscal year 2013 starting April 1, 2012. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will accept new petitions after April 1 until the H-1B cap is reached. The cap is 65,000 for FY 2012, with another 20,000 available for people who have earned at least a U.S. master’s degree. Although last year the cap was not reached until November, in previous years the cap was reached in the first few days of April, so employers are advised to have their petitions prepared for filing by March 30.
