Why U.S. employers file over 300,000 Labor Condition Application(LCA) every year while only about 100,000 H1B visas are issued? What's the difference between LCA and H1B Visa?
Before U.S. employer can file H1B visa petition with USCIS, it must fill Labor Condition Application(LCA) with the Department of Labor(DOL) demonstrating that it is paying the required wage for this position in the geographic region where the job is located.
When an employee renews or transfers his H1B visa or changes work location under some circumstances, he also needs to have a new LCA. DOL typically certifies more than 3 times the number of LCA than the number of H1B visas issued by USCIS. click here to know more about LCA and work visa?
Our LCA database includes LCA submitted for not only new employment, but also continuation or change in previously approved employment, new concurrent employment, change in employer and amended petition. Usually, only new employment needs H1B Visa quota.

The H-1B visa program limits the number of cap-subject petitions to 85,000 each fiscal year. However, why thousands of new LCA petitions for H-1B visa could still be filed after the cap was reached? Why over 300,000 LCA petitions were filed each fiscal year?
Petitions for new H-1B employment are exempt from the annual cap if the beneficiaries will work at
Petitions filed on behalf of current or former H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap also do not count toward the cap. Accordingly, USCIS will continue to process FY 2013 and FY 2014 petitions filed to:
- Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States.
- Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers.
- Allow current H-1B workers to change employers.
- Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
- Allow recapture of the time that H-1B workers spent outside the U.S.
- Change status back to H-1B from other status like H-4 or F-1.
