H-1B Visa Cap Has Been Reached For 2014

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi. This is Michael Niren, I’m an immigration lawyer and founder of It was just announced today, that the H1B cap for the fiscal year of 2015 has been reached. That means, no more H1B’s will be accepted, unless it’s a non-profit affiliated with a university, or renewal, they were accept April 1st, 2014 and it’s only the 7th of April and all the H1’s have been received.

Understanding the H-1B Visa Cap

The is unfortunate news, obviously the H-1B cap numbers are just way to low, there’s a huge demand for foreign workers with specialty skills, and the government is not allowing sufficient amounts of H1’s. But, that’s something congress will have to deal with and hopefully the numbers will go up in the future.

Alternatives For Those Interested in the H-1B Visa

But, for now if you are interested in getting a Work Visa for the US, the H-1B is not really on the table, unless you’re willing to work in the year 2016.

There are other options for Work Visa’s, for example TN Visa’s, L
Visa’s, E Visa’s, there’s a whole host of Visa’s that may be applicable for you. I suggest, if you are interested in a Work Visa, that you are welcome
to contact us and we can do an assessment and hopefully we can help you out.

This happens every year, seven days is not a very long time for the cap to be reached. But, there’s always hope to help people get their Visa’s. Of course, in most cases you need a job offer from a US employer, so make sure if you are interested in applying for a Work Visa you have a job offer, in some cases you don’t need that, but in most cases you do.
