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.
