‘Tis the Season to Register for the Fiscal Year 2024 H-1B Visa Lottery!
Mai Chao Chang, Nicole S. Schram | 02.15.23
Each year, employers compete in a lottery to secure coveted H-1B visas for their foreign employees. The H-1B visa allows foreign nationals to enter the United States to perform temporary work in a “specialty occupation” in numerous industries, such as technology, healthcare, professional services, education, and more. H-1B employees can work initially for three years, can extend H-1B status up to six years, and can often be sponsored by employers for legal permanent residence in the future.
