  • H1 exemption for me?

    I learned from this site that H1 exemption applies to employees of higher education institues, non-profit organization and government research organization. Does this mean ALL universities and non-profit organizations? If not, how can I determine whether my (future) employer is qualified in these categories?

    I am in Environmental Engineering and interested in research type of job. Since 2005 quota has been reached, I thought H1 exemption might be a way to go for me. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    don't quote me on this because i am also relatively new on this, but from what i understand you still need to apply for a h1 visa. it is just that they will not count it as part of the cap if you are working for educational institutions.

      nothing to do with the cap

      it is just to decide whether to charge the fee or not.
      Nothing to do with the cap(cap includes non-profit organizations too)
