H1 transfer to non-cap exempt to NGO

Recommended Posts


My current H1 is with an employer who is not cap exempt (i.e. mine was picked as part of regular lottery). If my h1B is transferred to NGO which is cap-exempt, will my H1B automatically become cap exempt? 

If yes, does that mean that after I join NGO, I can only transfer my H1B to another cap exempt employer such as another NGO?


Thank you, appreciate your help!
