  • Flash News- H1B Cap reached

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap for fiscal year (FY) 2014. USCIS has also received more than 20,000 H-1B petitions filed on behalf of persons exempt from the cap under the advanced degree exemption. After today, USCIS will not accept H-1B petitions subject to the FY 2014 cap or the advanced degree exemption.

      To clarify it is multiple employers filing for H1B not single employer. Please refer to this post http://www.facebook.com/desiopt1/posts/634224699928236

        It does not make sense to do lottery twice for master's cap. According to my understanding and I quote, "The agency will conduct the selection process for advanced degree exemption petitions first. All advanced degree petitions not selected will be part of the random selection process for the 65,000 limit." So USCIS people will go through the masters cap applications and select them personally and after that those applications who dont get selected will go in the 65000 pool. Right guys????

              USCIS conducts 2 random selections

              1. First USCIS will conduct random selection (lottery) for Advanced Degree exemption petition i.e. for 20,000 limit.
              2. Second, All Advanced degree petitions not selected above will be part of the random selection process for the 65,000 limit (General Pool)

              Hence Masters Degree student will have two chances.If you have filed with multiple employers, your chances will increase. Twice for each Employer.

                            One shouldn't file H1B with multiple employers, as USCIS will deny or revoke multiple petitions....
