USCIS has reached the congressionally mandated H-1B cap for fiscal year 2016 on April 7. However, USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. 

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 fiscal year 2015 and 2016 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.
