USCIS Update on Change of Status Cap-Gap Fix
April 18, 2008
The USCIS today announced an important change that should benefit students who would have otherwise experienced a gap between the expiration of their Employment Authorization Documents and the start of H-1B status on October 1, 2008. Click here to read the full text of the USCIS Update.
We are currently analyzing the impact this announcement will have on H-1B petitions that were just filed for a Fiscal Year 2009 visa and are contacting our clients who may benefit from this "cap gap" remedy.
