H-1b petitions not subject to the cap



Which H-1B petitions are not subject to the cap?


INS will continue to process petitions filed for current H-1B workers, since they do not affect the visa cap. Such applications include petitions to:

  • Extend the stay for current H-1B workers; 

  • Amend the terms of employment for current H-1B workers; 

  • Allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and 

  • Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
