I am a Chilean citizen with a master's degree issued by a US university, thus I qualify for both H-1B and H-1B1 visas. I understand the H-1B application rules, but I have some doubts about the H-1B1 visa.
1) Can I start working immediately after my H-1B1 visa is approved, or do I need to wait until October 1st?
2) What is the typical processing time for this type of visa?
3) Has the cap for Chilean citizens ever been reached?
H1B1 is best applied for at the consulate. There is no deadline if the quota is available which it seems to be.
