On April 1, 2010, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service will begin accepting H-1B Specialty Occupation visa petitions.

Despite the economic downturn, employers are encouraged to begin preparing and filing H-1B petitions on behalf of their employees to ensure that work authorization is secured.
