There is no update from USCIS on H1B Visa 2014 Cap Count as of April 4, 2013
But, reading news about H1B shows that USCIS could have created a mini-panic with their press release.
…based on feedback from a number of stakeholders … USCIS anticipates that it may receive more than 65,000 cap-subject H-1B petitions and more than 20,000 petitions filed … between April 1, 2013 and April 5, 2013.
Above statement could have created a mini-panic. Employers and Attorney’s should work extra hours to get 1000’s of applications to USCIS before April 5, 2013.
USCIS could have published daily H1B 2014 Cap count updates.
If not, Fedex, USPS and UPS could publish volume of applications they delivered in first 5 days.
What if…what if… H1B quota is not hit within first 5 days?
Many Employers will feel relieved if H1B 2014 Cap is not reached in first 5 days.
We have to wait for official H1B Quota count updates from USCIS, which could be on April 8 or April 9.
There are several reports from Immigration attorney’s about delay or errors in Fedex H1B Visa petitions delivery confirmation.
P.S: There are atleast 3 Immigration law firms filing over 2000 H1B applications each and still filing 100’s per day.
I wonder how many paralegals are required to file so many applications.
