MBA On Demand

H-1B Principals

Congress restricts new H-1Bs (generally applying to individuals who have never had H-1B status but with very significant exceptions) to 65,000 per year and makes 20,000 more exempt from the cap for those with Masters degrees or higher (Ph.D. Medical, Law degrees, etc.) from U.S. Institutions.  The 85,000 are available when the fiscal year begins each October 1st. Petitions for H-1Bs can be filed 6 months before the employment will begin. Thus, the California and Vermont Service Centers, the service centers designated for new H-1Bs, will be flooded with petitions on April 1.

This Legal Chat will review general H-1B principles but with a focus on the cap and the many considerations that apply particularly for "cap gap" F-1 students and 'academic H-1Bs.
