We have published all labor applications(LCA) filed by U.S. employers during the first 9 months of fiscal year 2016 through our legacy database system.

USCIS will begin accepting H-1B petitions subject to the FY 2017 cap on April 1, 2016. Please read this mail carefully to ensure your employer or attorney file the petition properly!

1. Complete all sections of the Form I-129 petition, including the H Classification Supplement and the H-1B Data Collection and Filing Fee Exemption Supplement.
2. Make sure each form has an original signature, preferably in black ink.
3. Include signed checks or money orders with the correct fee amount.
4。 Submit all required documentation and evidence with the petition at the time of filing to ensure timely processing.
5. Ensure there is only one H-1B position for the beneficiary of each petition.
6. You must file the petition to the correct USCIS service center.

USCIS employees use the information provided in Sections 2 and 3 (or Part C) of the H-1B Data Collection and Filing Fee Exemption Supplement to help us determine if a petition is subject to the congressionally mandated cap of 65,000 H-1B visas.

An advanced degree exemption is available for the first 20,000 petitions filed for a beneficiary who has obtained a U.S. master's degree or higher. Once that limit is reached, any petitions filed for beneficiaries with a U.S. master's degree or higher will be subject to the regular cap, unless exempt for other reasons.
