Employer Alert: Start Planning Now For 2013 Hiring Needs

By: Nathaniel R. Wolf

Employers recruiting foreign students from U.S. universities or foreign professionals should begin planning for March 31, 2013.  That is the date H-1B "professional" visa petitions should be filed to be eligible for fiscal year 2014 H-1B quota slots under the Immigration and Nationality Act.  A professional is a broadly defined term that encompasses many higher level positions generally requiring a four-year college degree.  The annual visa quota goes fast so plan now to file by April.  

If you have questions about the H-1B visa program or how to begin to plan your petition, please email Nate Wolf at call him at 616-632-8046.
