H-1B Visa Lottery: April's Full Day


Atlanta Partner Shanon Stevenson was quoted on Bloomberg in a March 28 article entitled “H-1B Visa Lottery: April’s Full Day.” The article discussed the April 1 H-1B visa opening and the fact that the visa cap was quickly hit. Shanon commented that if a 65,000 visa limit fills within five days, the allotment system will become a lottery and employees will be randomly selected for visas. “They will have to really be sitting on pins and needles,” Shanon said. “They have to start thinking, what do we do if we can’t have this person start on Oct. 1? We have to have a backup plan.”
