H1B Visa - Frequently Asked Questions


Can I intend to immigrate permanently to the U.S. when on H-1B visa?

Yes, you may apply for Adjustment of Status while on H-1B visa. You may be the beneficiary of an immigrant visa petition, or take other steps toward Lawful Permanent Resident status without affecting H-1B status. This is known as 'dual intent' in the immigration law. During the time your application for LPR status is pending, you may travel on your H-1B visa rather than obtaining Advance Parole or requesting other advance permission from USCIS to return to the U.S.

Are there any travel restrictions on H1B visas?

Yes, in addition to increasing the cap, AC21 exempts H-1B workers who are employed by or have an offer of employment from:

  • Institutions of higher education
  • Related or affiliated nonprofit entity
  • Nonprofit or government research organization

Note: AC21 also specifies that H-1B worker be counted against the cap if the worker transfers from an 'exempt' employer to an employer that does not have an exemption.
