U.S. employers that want to hire workers using an H-1B visa would be wise to file their applications on or around April 1, the first day the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be accepting applications. H-1B visas are popular among employers that want to hire foreign workers for “professional” or “specialty” positions requiring at least a bachelor’s degree.

The USCIS makes 65,000 H-1B visas available each year. In previous years, the agency has hit that quota within the first week. In 2009, the quota wasn’t reached until December. But experts are predicting H-1B visa numbers to be filled more quickly this year. The applications are for employment that would begin as early as Oct. 1, 2010.
