H-1B CAP HAS BEEN REACHED

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


On Friday the USCIS announced that the H-1B cap has been reached. The USCIS will hold a lottery and return any petitions for Beneficiaries who do not win the lottery. F-1 students who wish to use the "cap-gap" rules must be lottery winners. F-1 students who do not win the lottery must exit the US at the conclusion of their F-1 period.



H-1B cap-subject petitions include:


* International students working on an EAD card under an OPT or CPT program after having attended a U.S. school



* International employees working on a TN may need an H-1B filed for them in order for them to pursue a permanent residency (green card) case


* Prospective international employees in another visa status e.g. H-4, L-2, J-1, F-1


* H-1B workers with a cap exempt organization


* Prospective international employees currently living abroad
