Transfer from non-profit H1B to for-profit H1B


Recommended Posts


I am working for a non-profit company on STEM OPT (Expiry: June 2021) and recently my H1B visa (non-profit) was approved (Start date: Feb 2021).

I am looking to transfer to a for-profit job in the future. I am aware of the fact that a non-profit H1B would not work for the for-profit company and my new employer would have to file a new H1B visa. But I just have one lottery chance left out of 3 to file for cap-subject H1B.

Considering I would not be able to get a job till March 2021 and thus not be able to file for the H1B in April. What would be my options if I missed this last chance? Would I be able to apply for cap-subject H1B if I don't have any chances left?

I would really appreciate it if you could answer these questions.
