At the height of H-1B season, we have been neglecting you, and for this we sincerely apologize. There has been a lot going on in the world of immigration. Here is a preview.
The final OPT-Stem Extension rule was published on March 11 and will take effect before the May 10, 2016. We will review the final rule and publish a detailed summary in April.
The proposed green card EAD rule comment period is coming to a close. We will review the proposed rule and provide a detailed summary in April.
The April 2016 Visa Bulletin was published earlier this week. We will post the advancements made by the end of the week.
There have also been several memos published by USCIS providing important guidance for employment-based categories, which we also will provide a detailed update in April.
Finally, the FY-2017 H-1B Lottery is looming. Petitions must be received in the first 5 business days of April. Within the week, we will provide a complete breakdown of the process, including predictions and timelines.
As always, we aim to provide you with updates on complex immigration issues in plain English, even if we are a little late!
