2018年財政年的H1-B簽證申請的抽籤已經結束

根據美國移民局最新的宣布的消息,2018年財政年的H1-B簽證申請的抽籤已經結束。移民局已經收到了足夠的申請表​格,其中包括所有的美國碩士學位很本科學位的申請。移民局也會很快將那些未被選中的申請包裹以及申請的費用一併退回。


移民局將會繼續接受和處理那些不用抽籤的H1-B 申請, 裡麵包括對於H1-B 的延期 還有轉換雇主等等。但是請注意的是在今年的4月3號的時候,移民局已經宣布移民局暫時不接受加急的處理。所以關於2018財政年年度的H1-B 申請,都只能耐心等待移民局的審批結果,而整個審批過程大概需要6個月的時間。

USCIS Reaches FY 2018 H-1B Cap

WASHINGTON - U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has reached the congressionally mandated 65,000 visa H-1B cap for fiscal year 2018. USCIS has also received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to ​meet the 20,000 visa U.S. advanced degree exemption, also known as the master's cap.


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

USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. However, please keep in mind USCIS suspended premium processing April 3 for up to six months for all H-1B petitions, including cap-exempt petitions. Petitions filed on behalf of current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap, and who still retain their cap number, will also not be counted toward the congressionally mandated FY 2018 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 occupations that require specialized knowledge.We encourage H-1B applicants to subscribe to the H-1B Cap Season email updates located on the H-1B Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Cap Season Web page.
