US Will Accept New H-1B Visa Petitions for 2020

H-1B Visa 2020

UPDATE: The USCIS has announced that the amount of applications they will accept for 2020 has been reached. They are no longer accepting applications for H-1B visas.

Recently the USCIS (US Citizenship and Immigration Services) announced that they will begin accepting new H-1B visa petitions on April 1st, 2019 for the 2020 year. Those who apply for the H-1B visa will have an employment start date of October 1st. Just as the previous years have stated the H-1B visa will have a cap limit for 2020 of 65,000 individuals. An additional 20,000 petitioners who have a Master’s or higher degree from a US university will also get the H-1B visa.

In the previous year, H-1B visa has been capped for 2019. There has been a crackdown and overall negative comments around the H-1B visa so many immigration lawyers believe there will be fewer H-1B applications than previous years.

There has been several changes to the H-1B visa and their visa holders in the last 2 years which has made many people wary of the visa. Those who wish to apply for the H-1B visa must apply before April 1st, 2019 in order to obtain the visa for 2020.

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.
