USCIS will host a webinar on March 16, 2016, to discuss T and U visas and the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), immigration relief for victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes. Representatives from USCIS's Office of Policy and Strategy and the Vermont Service Center (VSC) will provide an overview of T and U visa eligibility requirements, law enforcement certification, and VAWA eligibility requirements. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
The Fiscal Year 2017 H-1B season will end at the end of this month March 2016.
USCIS will start accepting H-1B visa petitions on April 1, 2016.
We anticipate that the cap will be reached during the first week it is opened, which was the case last year as well.
For that reason we strongly recommend that you start your H-1B case and prepare for submission of the petition by April 1, 2016.
