Question
Hello Robert,
I'm working for a company under OPT now which expires Jan 31st 2007. I just realized today that the h1b CAP for this years has reached its limit.   My company has not processed my h1b application and now its too late. Is there any work around or any other way that my company could apply for h1b? What should I do? Please help . Thanks .  

Answer
Filing for H-1 is out until 4/1/07 for work to begin 10/1/07, unless you have a Masters Degree from A U.S. University. To get around the issue, you may want to get a new I-20 and continue your education for another year, while you wait to apply for H-1 in April.


Regards,

Robert
