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 visaplace.com. It was just announced today, that the H-1B 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.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
