The H1b Aftermath; what’s next on US Immigration & Employment.


As we move from the H1B CAP to beginning new phases, there will be challenges that we will need to prepare for. There will be big changes and most probably a purposeful change that one will create. Given that we all have a lot to consider in our lives, we need to stop waiting for the opportunity and make one ourselves before it’s too late.

A lot of people use the word dream, by which a lot of us want to create something but can’t do it right away, just like what Joseph Campbell said “A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. A goal is what specifically you intend to make happen. Dreams and goals should be just out of your present reach but not out of sight. Dreams and goals are coming attractions in your life.” – this means that, for us to reach our goals in life we need to make our own plans from time to time, take initiative, strategize and make things happen. We may not necessarily succeed immediately, but what is important is that we have tried, and we are willing to “bounce back” until our goal is reached.

Our services provide free employment and immigration seminars, monthly forums and workshops almost every month. This is to ensure that the public is aware of the most current news on both US Employment and Immigration. Further, we recommend steps and options that would best suit an applicant’s need, as it is always specific to each client’s situation and case.

As a result, CSI Professionals, Inc. is committed to serving it’s current and future clients by discussing the options even after the H1b Cap. If you did not make it to the H1b fiscal year 2018-19, you may be eligible to change to other non-immigrant working categories like H3, J1 and some with on CPT or OPT from their qualifying US degrees as F1, which may lead to EB3 or EB2 (green card). While there may be more issues to discuss, there are a number of options to pursue the so-called, American Dream, as long as you maintain your status, lawfully and with advanced steps to protect your and family’s stay.

The following are descriptions and excerpts of our recent H1b Aftermath Back-to-Back Forum: (see picture below)

Nonimmigrant visas are for foreign nationals desiring to enter the United States on a temporary basis – for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work, study, or other similar reasons.

The category of nonimmigrant visa required is defined by immigration law and related to the purpose of the travel. When a visa is issued, there is no assurance of entry to the United States. A visa simply specifies that a U.S. immigration officer at an American embassy or consulate has reviewed the application and that officer has determined that the individual is eligible to enter the U.S. for a specific purpose. The CBP (Custom & Border Protection) Officer at the port-of-entry will still conduct an assessment if the individual is eligible for admission.

Here are the lists of the various types of categories of non-immigrant visas available under immigration law:

  • B2 (Non Immigrant Visa; Pleasure/Medical Treatment; Requirements)
  • F1 (Non Immigrant Visa; International Student; Requirements)
  • H1B (Non Immigrant Visa; Specialty Occupation; Requirements) ·
  • H3 (Non Immigrant Visa; Trainee Visa; Requirements) ·
  • J1 (Non Immigrant Visa; Professional Exchange Trainee.

Requirements after a successful nonimmigrant option and if you find yourself qualified in one of these available categories, we may proceed to Labor Certification; EB2 or EB3 leading to a green card.

Keep in mind that CSI Professionals will be with you every step of the way. All this information is provided so that you yourself will know how the process works and how every case is specific; the best solution to your questions is to address them individually.
