Since it is a not for profit i will fall under the quota.

She can transfer to other not for profits. Transferring to other for profit companies is challenging as it has to be under the quota.

Thanks

Default Some non-profits are not cap-subject

If the non-profit that she plans on working for is (a) affiliated with an institute of higher education; or (b) a research organization;

then she should not be subject to the cap. Otherwise, the non-profit probably is subject to the H-1B cap, so she couldn't start until October 1.

Thanks for the reply.

They said she can start as soon as it it approved.Only thng i am worried about is when she wants to transfer H1b what are the hurdles have to be faced.I heard or enquired that as long as Quota is there she can transfer H1B.

Is it legally difficult because transfering from Non Profit to Regular Organization.

Thanks

If your wife wants to transfer to a cap-subject employer, she will only be able to do so if the H-1 quota for the fiscal year has not been used up. If the H-1 cap has not been reached then transferring from a cap-exempt employer is no more difficult than transferring from a cap-subject employer. (though the new start date would have to be Oct. 1 or later)
