    USCIS has received a sufficient number of petitions projected as needed to reach the congressionally-mandated 65,000 H-1B visa regular cap for fiscal year 2020. USCIS will next determine if we have received a sufficient number of petitions to meet the 20,000 H-1B visa U.S. advanced degree exemption, known as the master’s cap.

    The agency will reject and return filing fees for all unselected cap-subject petitions that are not prohibited multiple filings.

    USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. Petitions filed for current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap, and who still retain their cap number, are exempt from the FY 2020 H-1B cap. USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions filed to:

    Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States;
    Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers;
    Allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and
    Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
    U.S. businesses use the H-1B program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. We encourage H-1B applicants to subscribe to the H-1B Cap Season email updates located on the H-1B Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 Cap Season page.
