H-1B Immigration Visas for High-Tech Workers

The H-1B lottery process this year coincides with the start of a new presidential administration. Employers may be concerned about how the new administration may affect the H-1B visa process.

This year’s H-1B lottery will also continue to incorporate an Electronic Registration Process which allows employers to initially submit an H-1B lottery electronic application without incurring the time and expense of preparing the traditional government forms.

Additionally, employers nationwide have experienced increased H-1B denials, as the government continues to scrutinize entry-level computer-related occupations. National approval rates stand at 71%, an increase in the number of denials compared to 2015.

Join immigration attorney Roger Tsai to learn how to respond effectively to RFEs and position your organization for a successful H-1B process. Topics covered will include:

  • Discussing how H-1B visas may be affected by a new administration
  • Smarizing the real-world impact of DOL final regulations on prevailing wages and ongoing federal litigation challenges
  • Creating a nexus between beneficiary’s skill set and relation between his/her degree and occupation
  • Providing evidence that a position qualifies as a “specialty occupation”
  • Understanding the Electronic Registration Process and how it affects the H-1B lottery timeline
  • Understanding the final rule to change the H-1B lottery to prioritize high wage workers
