  • Blogging: Biggest H-1B Users by Chris Musillo

    Bloggings on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

    by*Chris Musillo

    The US allows 65,000 new cap-subject H-1Bs in any fiscal year. *Added to that is another 20,000 H-1Bs for those who have graduated from US Master's degree programs.* There is no limit on cap-exempt H-1B employers.* Cap-exempt employers are nonprofit entities (or their affiliates) who are associated, owned or attached to a university.* Some research facilities are also exempt from the H-1B cap.*

    Computerworld*reports that 134,780 cap-subject H-1Bs were approved in fiscal year 2013 (the filing period for cap-subject FY2013 H-1Bs was April 1, 2012 June 12, 2012).* This is the greatest number of filings since FY2007. *Computerworld notes that all of the top H-1B users are all technology companies.* There are not any healthcare companies anywhere near the top of the list.* Will Congress carve out a visa path for these badly needed healthcare workers?*

      Would moving to geared to income co-op be considered government help when in process of application of a green card?
