Switch this H1B to the other

Some employer are exempt from H1B annual quota such as nonprofit organization and research institution such as schools and universities. What if you have H1B from such nonprofit organization to private company which is regulated by H1B quota? Well, it pretty much depend on which category that your final employer fall into.

For example, you now work for no quota regulated employer and would like to move to quota regulated private company, you will need to follow all steps of filing in April and start to work in October that type of thing. If you are still going to another no quota regulated job, then you still do not need to worry about quota issue. Vice-Versa

It is about time to prepare your H1B visa

People will think there are 65,000 world wide quota for regular H1B visa applicants and 20,000 for master degree holder but the truth is 65,000 quota include Singapore and Chile reserved quota so people from those two countries will get the piority. Last year 65,000 quota used up at the first day and 20,000 qu0ta also used up in mid April.

Even though the company will use the their own lawyer instead of the one you choose, you should still work with the company lawyer closely to make sure the process is handled properly as a lot of company lawyer might not be specilized in immigrantion issue.

For those who just graduate from school, please find out your OPT expiration date as you might have gap between your OPT expiration date and October H1B effective date. All H1B will effect on October the first.
