H-1 CAP TO BE REACHED BEFORE THE END OF NOVEMBER

Rate this Entry


MU clients are urged to initiate and file any regular cap-subject H-1B cases as soon as possible.  MU now believes that the H-1B cap may be reached before the end of November.

The latest USCIS update is that 56,300 of the 65,000 regular H-1B numbers have been used as of November 14, 2011, leaving about 8,000 H-1B visas.  The demand for H-1B numbers has surged in the last few weeks.

Employees that may need an H-1B visa include:


  •  International students working on an EAD card under an OPT orCPT 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


 


International workers who are working in the U.S. on an H-1B visa with another cap-subject employer are not subject to H-1B cap.  These cases are commonly referred to as "H-1B transfer" cases and may be filed at any time throughout the year.

The USCIS sets aside an additional 20,000 H-1B numbers for graduates of US Masters degree (or higher) programs through a program referred to as the "H-1B Masters Cap".  The H-1B Masters Cap has been reached.  H-1B Masters Cap petitions are now also counted against the regular H-1B cap.
