H-1B CAP REACHED FOR 2020

H-1B CAP REACHED FOR 2020

April 5, 2019
The USCIS has announced that the mandated regular cap on H-1B applications for 2020 has been reached. The H-1B visa is only approved for 65,000 people for the fiscal year, with an additional 20,000 given for an “advanced degree” exemption.
The USCIS will continue to process petitions if they are exempt from the regular cap, as well as those petitions that apply to visa holders asking for extensions, changing their H-1B terms, changing employers, or attempting to gain a second H-1B position in addition to the one they hold already.
For those wondering about their H-1B status or qualifications, it is important to seek legal counsel to determine if you are eligible for a cap exemption or for another work visa.
