H-1B Processing Time: How Long It Takes to Get Approved

The H-1B is a visa category generally reserved for individuals in “specialty occupations,” and normally requires a bachelor’s degree at minimum. Positions in engineering, math, business and many technology fields fall under this “specialty occupation” umbrella. With 236,000 applications for only 85,000 visas in 2016, the importance of timing and processing procedures cannot be overstated. This article aims to explain the key issues involved in successfully navigating the H-1B petition process.

With few exceptions, availability in this visa category is limited, and this is known as the “H-1B cap.” For individuals with a U.S. bachelor’s degree, or foreign equivalent, the cap is set at 65,000. There are 20,000 additional H-1B numbers, technically exemptions, available for holders of U.S. master’s degrees. Together this gives a total of 85,000 “cap-subject” H-1B visas.

What Is the H1 Visa?

The H1 visa is a work permit visa that lets foreign nationals with special skills and education work in the United States. It's not a green card visa that will let you stay indefinitely, but it can last for up to six years. H1 visas are popular because they are easier to get than green cards.

Every H1 visa issued today is an H1B. There have been H1A and H1C visas in the past, but both were special cases created to fight nursing shortages and both are now out of use. However, you can still get a special H1B1 if you're a Chilean or Singapore national.
