H1B Visa 2016 Filing Season Complete, Cap reached on April 7th, 2015.

Planning for next H1B season, Check out H1B Visa 2017 FAQs

As many of you know, H1B Visa 2015 quota was over in the first week and a whopping 172,500 H1B petitions were received in first week by USCIS.  H1B Lottery / random selection was held by USCIS to select 85,000 H1B petitions to fulfil the work permit cap. Many of the unlucky ones are already wondering about next year H1B Visa quota. Also, some of you are planning for H1B visa for next year, you also would be wondering regarding the same. This article addresses many of the common questions, it will be updated constantly, whenever any changes to info.  Bookmark this page !  To start with, firstly the news updates on this season, followed by many commonly asked questions.

Official & Unofficial USCIS News Updates Regarding H1B 2016 Season 

When will the H1B season for fiscal 2016 begin ?

USCIS will accept petitions for H1B Visa 2016 season starting from April 1st, 2015.  USCIS did a press release on March 12th outlining the details. Read summary of press release by USCIS on H1B 2016 .

Will there be lottery again for H1B Visa 2016 ? Predictions ?

We had lottery for FY 2015 and FY 2014. The total number of petitions filed for FY 14 were about 125,000 and for  FY 2015, there were about 172,500 petitions… As H1B Quota did not increase for FY 2016, and the demand does not seem to decrease, we would very likely have lottery for FY 2016.  Read H1B Visa 2016 Lottery Predictions, Dates, Results

What is the H1B Visa quota Cap Count ? Would there be any changes to H1B 2016 count ?

H1B Visa quota cap count is the total number of petitions that USCIS will accept for a fiscal year to provide temporary work permit for highly skilled workers.  For the 2016 fiscal year, the cap count is as below :

  • Regular H1B Quota : 65,000
  • H1B Masters Degree Quota ( only US Degrees) : 20,000
  • Out of the above, a total of 6,800 is usually set aside for Singapore and Chile citizens as part of the free trade agreement between them.

As per the press release in March 2015, the quota did not increase.  To give some background, as per the Obama executive action in Nov 2014, no changes were announced to the H1B Cap count. There was proposal in 2013 to increase H1B cap from 65,000 to 110,000 and Masters quota to increase from 20,000 to 25,000 did not go through as of March 2015. At least, for this FY 2016 season, the quota is fixed and it will be as above and no changes.

When should I start planning for H1B Visa 2016 ? What are the steps ?

It depends on your situation. Below are few scenarios and your plan.

  • If you are a student on F1 Visa in USA, you need to plan for your internship/ CPT or OPT employment  at a company that can sponsor your H1B Visa for FY 2016. In my view, you should start now to find something for the fall 2014 and continue that for next spring so that you can file for FY 2016
  • If you are in other country and planning for H1B, it is good to start your process around the end of this year 2014. It will give you enough time to find sponsors, search for job, etc.
  • If you are on H4, L1 or other visa in USA and planning for H1B for FY 2016, you also should consider looking around end of this year i.e. December 2014.

We have published step by step plan, you can read the article How to plan for H1B Visa 2016 ?Step by Step Guide 

Most asked Question – How do I Find H1B Sponsors for FY 2016 ?

This is a million dollar question !  One of the biggest challenges is to find a good sponsor that can offer you a job and wait for you to start work after 6 months of filing your petition.  You should review the detail article on How to find H1B Sponsors for FY 2015. Your first place of start is to find the H1B Sponsors in an area or by company. Use our H1B Visa Sponsors Database to search and filter. Read this article on details on how to search in our H1B Sponsor database. We keep the database updated as DOL publishes data. Do NOT share your email or phone number on our website as comments, there are many people do H1B Sponsorship fraud by requesting money using your contact info. RedBus2US.com never provides personal guidance on H1B sponsors or seeks money from anyone, we only display publicly available data on our H1B Sponsors Database page. We DO NOT sponsor H1Bs or guide anyone. Beware of H1B sponsorship Fraud ! 

What about Comprehensive Immigration Reform ( CIR) – H1B Visa Changes ? What are they ?

There have been some proposed changes to the H1B Visa program to cater to the demand in the  US economy as part of the Comprehensive Immigration reform. Below are some of the proposed changes.

  • H1B Cap to be increased from 65,000 to 110,000 per year.  Also have provisions to have it up to 180,000 in case of extreme demand.
  • Advanced degree from US cap quota to increase from 20,000 to 25,000
  • The Filing fee for H1B could go up to 10,000 USD
  • Additional H1B rules to avoid H1B Visa fraud by employers
  • Mandatory LCA posting for 30 days before it is certified.

These were proposed in 2013, but nothing has moved significantly and all the above are just proposed rules. We are not sure when they will be implemented. You can read  Summary of CIR – Immigration reform – H1B Visa and Green Card  to get an idea. The latest update is that Obama has taken executive action on Immigration in Nov  2014  and none of the below are included as part of that.  Stay tuned for updates.

H1B Visa 2016 Fees – Any changes ? How much does it cost ?

There are various components of the fee. The H1B Application filing fee could range anywhere from $1,600 USD to $4,400 depending on the size of the company. The attorney fee can range from $500 to $3000 depending on the attorney. If you apply for premium processing that is another $1,225. The fees has not changed in the past couple of years for FY 2014 and FY 2015. Unless USCIS revises fee based on immigration reform, it should be same. We will keep you all posted. For complete details of the fee by components and break up, read the article H1B Visa  Fees and Who Pays for What ?

H4 Visa EAD rule impact on H1B Visa 2016 Season ?

As you know, certain H4 visa holders are now eligible for EAD. The H4 Visa EAD Rule Passed earlier in 2015 and is effective from May 26, 2015.  USCIS will start accepting applications for EAD from those eligible H4 visa holders starting from May 26th. The question is that will that have an impact on number of H1B petitions for this fiscal year  ?  It very likely will have certain impact on the number of H1B applications that are filed for this year 2016 quota. Many of the H4 holders, who would now be eligible for EAD, may not apply for H1B visa, just because it gives them more flexibility to work and more choices to work as well. We would have to wait and see, how much of an impact that would have, but it is very straightforward and no brainer for eligible H4 visa holder to avoid the H1B processing.

H1B visa Premium Processing Changes to H1B Visa 2016 quota ? 

USCIS updated in their press release that the premium processing will be accepted for FY 2016 quota and they will only begin that “no later than May 11, 2015”. What it means for the petitioners is that the official 15 day premium processing clock starts from May 11th, 2015 and their petition could be adjudicated within 15 days from May 11th, which would be May 26th, 2015.  USCIS can process them earlier as well, but their new timeline is just indication for setting the right expectations to meet the stipulated time frame for premium processing.

Track H1B Visa 2016 Cap Count updates ?

As in previous years, we have created a page, where would track the cap count updates for FY 2016. You may check out  H1B visa 2016 Cap Count Tracker.

        either you dont know or you are trying to invoke some humor (not worthy) … Its not 10 years definitely…but I dont know how many years is required. I guess above 4 – 5 years…but not sure

    1. Not certain

      There is nothing rule like u should this much of exp. If ur attorney can proof that you knew some technology that is not available in US. then u r eligible to H1b visa. U may have 1 year or of 20 years.. .exp..in that technology..

  1. Hina

    Is there anywhere written that they have to give either RFE or an approval before 1st october? If it is so, kindly share the link…. Waiting in Case Recieved Status since long and just wanted to know till when it will last.

    1. RFERFE

      Nope. Only in Premium Processing, USCIS has to provide a response by 15 calendar days (clock is set back to day 1 on receiving RFE). In case of Regular Processing, they try to provide a response by October 1, but it has gotten delayed beyond Oct 1 in some cases in the past.

  2. Capgemini_H1

    Has everyone from Capgemini received lottery results or are they just not disclosing the lottery results until the petition is approved? I called immigration department last week and they said they haven’t received my rejection package either

  3. H1B_RFE

    Hi,
    My visa got filed for Project A, and I am released from that project and working for Project B. Also, No hopes from Project A to travel. Now the visa status RFE and asking about Project A details. Also, asking about are you going to travel for Project A?
    Please let me know, If i submit Project A documents and travel for Project B, will there be any issue during stamping? or Shall I submit Project B documents now

    1. Balaji

      I will suggest u to submit the project B documents, any point in time u can change your project documents.. Also if you are not working in project A, then your manager wont give u the project documents.

    2. h1bsenior

      Hi,
      I feel you need to send project A documents, and what about the location and how about LCA, as per my understanding, if there is a change in LCA from the time of filing petition, you will be in risk. Talk to the attorney once. because i have seen many cases and personally mine while working in USA, i applied for extension with proj A and received RFE and by the time i received RFE, i changed to different location and and responded with new LCA and new client letter, USCIS immediately denied with the same reason that there is change in client letter between initial and after rfe response. Ofcourse when i applied a new petition with new client letter i got approval.
      Please be careful while responding otherwise you will be in risk.

      1. H1B RFE

        Thanks for the response, I am submittin Project A documents only. But they are asking SOW, clinet letter and offer letter. I am submitting only client letter and offer letter only. as per my manager, SOWs are not mandatory. Please suggest

    1. CTS Hyderabad

      Yes, in my account few got approved after RFE answered. they filed the answer on July month.. got approval on August 4th week.

  4. H1b_FeelingConfuse

    Hi Guys,

    I attended visa interview Yesterday for my H1B petition in Delhi Embassy.
    The VO took all my documents including my passport but no 221G.
    Not sure how long it takes.
    Can any of you please let me know if you recieve any response by now, or how long it takes to get back our passport.
    Feeling very confuse…

    1. h1b_query

      hi , any way congracts to you. Mostly they tell the result at same time and then deliver you the passport within a few days.
      What exactly they told after the interview ??

      1. H1b_FeelingConfuse

        Actually VO was asking a lot of question related to my Petitioner.
        It seems, he was doubtful about my work experience and my petitioner.
        He asked for all the documents which I was carrying (Supported docs for my petitioner and my Original experience letters).
        At Last, he told me —you can collect all these documents in OFC center.We will inform you via Email/Phone.

    ndtv.com/world-news/hardware-snag-in-computers-hits-us-visa-services-globally-772771

    1. Sun197895

      Rahul,…pls read the article. This happened in June and more over it has nothing to do with receipt notices or case processing….This was a problem faced by US Embassy/consulate during visa stamping (Biometric)

  7. vinyas

    Hi All,

    I have got approved Visa. My approval notice has Hyderabad consulate. Can I apply from Chennai consulate for Visa stamping as it is near to my place.

    Kindly help.

    1. Silent Listener

      Yeah…..you can book at chennai consulate or any other consulate in india. Butyou need to give proper reason, if VO asks why you have booked this consulate.

      As USCIS has sent your approval notice and other information to hyderabad consulate. if you choose hyderabad for your appointment then they have to transfer your approval info and other information to chennai consulate. It all happens online but still.

      For your info chennai consulate is very busy and very strict consulate. better go to hyderabad consulate only 🙂

  8. Document Was Mailed

    My case was changed from Approved to Document Was Mailed recently, did anyone faced this same, what does this status means ?

    We mailed your document for your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number WACxxxxxx. If you do not receive your document by September 21, 2015, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request that we resend the document to you. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address.

    Do anyone have this experience, kindly share it

    Thanks…

    1. RFERFE

      Don’t sweat it. In most cases post-approval, USCIS doesn’t bother to update to this status… in your case it did. I believe it’s based on the officer incharge of your case, there’s no action on your part.

  9. waiting -RFE(CTS)

    It seems like Vermont centre is full of sluggish and lazy officers. i had received RFE with 2 of my peers, they got visa approved 10 days back.. their centre was California.

    If Visa start date is 1st October then they must settle all processes before that. it’s been more than month since RFE response was sent, still waiting for approval. 🙁

    1. KS

      USCIS does not provide any time frame guarantees for regular processing. If you need the visa urgently – upgrade to premium. Unfortunately, these are the rules of the game and they were known long time ago.

      1. Sun197895

        No one disagrees with the rules of the game … we are only telling that the rules are worse than India Govt. rules…Though I know the rules before I opted to go to US is simply because of money …. And US far far better in many areas when compared to other nations, so no blaming the nation….but just this process is what I am blaming. And if you know, the delay is only and only due to EAD (1, 50, 000 applications)…so a better management would have fore casted these many applications or some where around that mark and would have deployed more resources….

    2. Sam

      Dude u atleast got RFE. There are some people like me who are still waiting for any answer from Vermont. My current visa is expiring soon and I m in a situation where I might get out of status if I don’t have an answer soon. So chill …

  10. Andrew

    Guys my status was changed to RFE on August 29 but my lawyer hasn’t received docs from USCIS yet.

    What do you think, is it okay?

    How many days can we wait more?

    Thank you

  11. got h1 approval

    my visa approval series starts with WAC102**** and when I see in case status , it gives error and ask to call for clarification … still doubting the visa status thing … please let me know

  12. Sam

    Anyone knows if there is any background check for H1B case ? If so when it happen ? Before the visa interview or during the processing of case. I heard that 3rd party does the verification. Anyone filled any such data point online for 3rd part verification.

    1. Hillarious

      hahaha! Where did u get such info. Yes, they do BGV and if they find out that u have faked ur exp from a Hyd training inst then they will charge u with IPC420.

      Sahi hai yaar. u guys are amazing.

        1. Ram

          I need feedback about Atria group llc please . Filed this year . Didn’t get any proof but they say they filed it. Suspicious

  13. H1B_Approved

    Hi All, Can we switch job before going for stamping. My H1B is approved and all documents are with my current company. I heard we can switch job after 1st Oct and can ask USCIS for docs on new address. Is this true. Your suggestions will be very helpful for me to decide.

  14. Accy_Approval

    Finally after 3 month 23 days Accenture send the petition approval mail to almost everyone who were selected in lottery. I am one of those lucky ones…Best of Luck to everyone who is still waiting !!!

    P.S. – I am going for Stamping in October and Travelling in November …. 🙂 🙂

  15. Sundar

    Today I attended consular interview in Chennai. VO told my Visa has been approved. When I checked the status after 3 hours it showed as Issued. But when I check the status now, it is showing as Administrative Processing. H4 visa status of my wife and kid is showing as Issued. I am not sure what to do. Did anyone faced this kind of situation. What could be the reason for this. Could anyone please share your thoughts on this. I am very much worried now.

      1. Sundar

        VO asked my project document and asked me to wait. After 30 minutes, she called me and informed that visas are approved and gave me US rights pamphlet.

    1. Silent Listener

      Sundar……No worries!!! If VO has provided you “Rights to you in US” pamplet, then your Visa is approved. Usually some time Administrative processing shows if you are attended your interview afternoon time. You check tomorrow after 11:00AM, it will be Issued status.

      Even for me it was showing Administrative processing after my interview at chennai consulate. VO told me your visa is approved and provided me pamplet. Even i was worried but next day after 11:00AM it was showing issued. and received our passport with H1B and H4 stamping in next 2 days…..

      Not to worry…….have sound sleep ant see tomorrow your status…..Cheers!!!

  16. Naresh

    My status is till in Case was Received state….anybody in same situation?..mine is Regular Processing in general quote starting with EAC15149

    1. harish

      Me too…..but mine is WAC15148 series…….I see in 50 records 2 are only in same state..

      Still waiting for USCIS to update my status, most possibly an RFE.

    2. Bhanu

      Mine also.. EAC15143*****, I got an RFE earlier and my employer answered the RFE and now the status is Response to USCIS request for Evidence was Received on 9th Sep. Finger crossed.. All the best to you guys too..

  17. RFE2

    Hi Friends,

    For me it went for 2nd RFE. no documents were asked from me, I got email saying 2nd RFE sent. So what would be my status. can anyone help me to get clarified.

  18. reality

    Guys,
    I know everyone is very keen on going to USA by applying , i would just like to know as a typical guy who has minimum knowledge in a technology and got visa stamped!! what is the probability for me to settle down in USA ! For example i know oracle middleware technology and just in learning phase (did one project in India).
    can any one let me know based on their experience what are the chances of surviving in IT in USA???tx

    1. NM

      Friend – Don’t be in hurry to settle. Go there and see how things come together and then decide. You have 6 years..

      On chances of surviving – It entirely depends on your willingness to work hard and upgrade your knowledge and skills. Sometimes it may get tough. Do not worry about it just enjoy what comes.

    2. RFE

      There’s always room for knowledge to improve. You will need to work harder in USA to secure your job since the people working from India will be your direct competitors in terms of salary, flexibility and skills. Knowing that there are so many people to replace you already, you will always remain motivated. 🙂

  19. rajesh

    I got an RFE I checked the status and it was as below

    On June 23 : Request for Additional Evidence Was Mailed
    On 31st august : case got upgraded to premium with status change stating” request for premium processing has been received”
    On 1st Sep: The online status changed to “Case was received and a receipt notice was emailed”

    any idea when i would get an update on my rfe ??

    1. Very Soon

      Since you have upgraded to PP on Sept 1st you should get the response very soon by 15th Sept. USCIS is mandated to reply with decision in 15 days.

    2. Sun197895

      Today I got mail from my employer that cheque for premium processing has been shipped to USCIS. Can you or someone tell me how many days it might take for USCIS to receive the shipment (cheque) and then how many days to upgrade the case to premium.

      If you can answer out of your experience (since you have upgraded to Premium)

      Waiting for your reply.

      1. Uday

    AD/RP/Vermont center
    My case was approved on Sept 8… Got RFE (they couldn’t match some info on my employer in their database), they received our response on July 7. And finally approved.
    I can totally imagine what level of stress you guys have been having! Hang in there! And don’t spend too much time reading this forum, believe me, you’ll feel less stressed 🙂

    1. Yue

      Congrats!
      My case was received on 4/13 and got RFE in June. They received my RFE documents on 6/16, but I’m still waiting for final decision… Worried if it can be approved before Oct

  22. RFE_ETA

    I have applied for H1b from ETA Inc and received RFE. Is there anyone else in the same status? I have received RFE in month of July but no response is sent to USCIS till date. Please share your status from the same consultancy

    1. RFE

      I’m also in same situation bt from different consultancy… 🙁
      Dont know , Wht the Hell is going on…
      It has been almost two months now…

    1. cts_h1b

      This is really shocking . Even m in the same boat, provided SOW and Manager letter. God knows what’s going on in theirminds. When did USCIS received your RFE response.

    1. h1b aspirant

      Hello,
      Firstly Sad to hear that you lost the race for this year quota. You can reopen but chances are very less and many companies do not do that unless they feel that documentation is correct and attorney is confident. But looks like you are from CTS and i do not think CTS would go for that as they apply with some internal project or poor documentation. Unless you are sure of the RFE request and response, none can tell how you can proceed.
      Let everyone know what is your rfe, atleast someother person will gain out of it and will take care while responding rfe in their case.

    2. CTS Hyderabad

      when was your RFE answered ? when it is turned to be denial?
      what is the exact status message present for your receipt in uscis portal?

  23. cts

    Abyone from CTS waiting for RFE? Response recieved date by USCIS: 20th July, It’s in WAC, m really tensed now, Company asked for Client letter and SOW. provided both. It’s really painful.

    1. Same Case

      Same case as you, just provided Manager’s Letter instead of client letter. My case was recieved on 10th July.. Still waiting for rfe

  24. RFE clarification

    I have got the RFE couple of weeks back.
    My US consultant informed RFE related to the Consultancy and they are not ready to share those information with us.
    Nothing is transparent including the attorney who handled our cases.
    Our US consultant have successful H1 stories till last year and many employees working under them.
    Now,USCIS identify some mistakes on them and produce RFE to all candidature from that consultant.
    We have applied through them based on their past history and we got selected in Lot.
    In this case whom to blame, USCIS verification system which approved their cases earlier in all these years or the candidates applied through that consultancy?

    unfortunately we have to reappear again for the lot next year without our fault.(heard all the of them applied through that consultant got RFE,for the same reason).

      1. RFE clarification

        Thanks abc.But consultant himself said,it’s difficult for him to provide the evidence.So,we will be that o.1 percentage losers.

    1. Faith

      I am in the exact same situation , thinking if v have applied from the same consultancy .
      By any chance ,does your US consultancy name starts wit “V” ????

    2. h1bslaughteragain

      Ur case is similar to my case. In my employer told the same thing to me . All the appkications filed by them have got the same RFE. Even my employer is not sure about RFE. God please help me out of this situation

  25. H1B_RFE

    Got RFE on Education Evaluation. I have completed my 4 years BSc in Computer science and engineering and have almost 8 years job experience in IT. But don’t know what’s the actual reason behind this RFE. yet to wait for detail from USCIS.

        1. RFE

          Totally irrelevant and rude answer my friend. You could have done Bachelors of Engineering in 4 years though. In India, BSc is just 3 years and I used to think it was common in other countries too.

  26. Waiting....

    My status was changed to RFE today (WAC center), yet to receive the mail.

    I was thinking to upgrade to Premium along with RFE response. Is that possible or should it be separate?

    Mine is L1B (employer-A) to H1B(employer-B) COS. So, I am trying to see if I can close this RFE by 18th Sept and get some conclusion so that I can serve at-least 1 week of notice period for employer-A.

    Please suggest.

    Finally.. saw the golden words “Case Was Approved” today!

    My case got an RFE (pretty simple query on Specialty Occupation, to provide more job details) on May 15, my firm had responded promptly — USCIS received the case on June 16th and since then I was waiting for an update/approval (So it took about 3 months). My case is AD, RP, Vermont Center — work for a small business (no consulting firm) and my job is directly related to the Master’s degree here in the U.S. Despite that, I had to wait for so long to get an update. So don’t lose hope guys, have faith in yourselves (if you are an AD holder working under OPT Cap Gap, file for a PP change immediately — I was planning to do it this week), and always have a plan B in place. And many thanks to this site for providing an avenue to vent, some people on here offered genuine advice and it was much appreciated.

    Wish you all the best!

    1. Employer name

      Who s d consultancy or employer…it has been learned on visiting various blogs that many consultancy faking that chek was cashed bt no receipt received so as to avoid returning security deposit for time being and some are saying that they will inform and further delay returning petition amount after they start earning from their approved petitions..
      P.s. This s just a ideas and experiences from ppl not selected in past years or fake consultancy

      Request all such ppl facing same issue to share the employer name so that other applicants of same employer can discuss on next steps.

    TCSers,

    Looks like associates are receiving approval mail from visa cell ( i.e. petition approval mail without receiving any RFE status mail before). Is there still a chance for guys with “Awaiting Lottery Status” in VTS ?
