H1-B Cap for 2005 Almost Reached

without comments

Having suffered the delights of H1-B visa processing before becoming a permanent resident I like to watch the highs and lows of the visa and immigration world. There is a cap on how many new H1-B visitors (specialty workers, such as computer programmers) the country will allow and it is almost always exhausted. For 2005, this cap has almost already been reached and the USCIS is no longer accepting applications for start dates prior to October 1 2005!!!

The financial year for immigration starts October 1st; the USCIS is stating that applications received on or after October 2nd 2004 are being returned as those applications were too late for this year’s processing! Just amazing; it gets harder and harder to work in this country.
