H1-B cap exempt to H1-cap transfer chances


What are chances of finding an employer who is willing to transfer my H1-B cap exempt to H1-B cap in the filed of computer science.

Right now I got a Non-cap H1-B visa, but for next year I would like to work for a proper software company for which obviously H1-B transfer is required.

  1. If it has to be done under lottery, what are the chances for getting approved?
  2. If not approved, is it possible to continue with my non-cap exempt job?
  3. Is there any alternate way to get H1-B without lottery?

Thanks in advance,


  1. Chances of approval will depend upon the submitted docs and information. There is no concrete number to provide for this.

  2. Yes

  3. No other way to get cap-subject H-1B w/o going through the lottery
