According to a new study by the National Foundation for American Policy, H-1B denial rates for cap-subject petitions has risen “from 6% in FY 2015 to 24% through the third quarter of FY 2019”. Perhaps more amazing, 12% of extension/amendment H-1Bs are also being denied.
This NFAP study updates prior NFAP H-1B studies from April 2019 and August 2019. All of the NFAP data is collected from the USCIS Employer Data hub.
These denials have a grave impact on US healthcare, especially in rural areas who are increasingly relying on foreign-trained labor to augment incredible staffing shortage. Among the most popular occupations for H-1Bs are: Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapists, and Medical Technologists.
