More Troubles for OPT students filing H1-B visa

Ready or not, H-1B Cap Registration Season is upon us. This year, employers will participate in electronic registration by paying a $10 fee.

Given the ease, there will be huge number of H1-B applications and intense competition.

As per USCIS, Registration period is from March 1 – March 20, 2020 after which one cannot participate in H-1B Cap program. Employers will be notified about the selection by March 31st, following which they will be given at least 90 days to file the H-1B petition.

Given the short deadline for filing, OPT students even if they have a year or two of STEM OPT left, should give it a try now.

OPT students who are planning to be on cap gap need more caution, USCIS made it clear, that the selection of a case through pre-registration does not automatically qualify for cap-gap. In order to qualify, you will need to file H-1B prior to OPT expiration
