I was thinking if there’s a easy fox for this increasing number of H1B Visa Applications and I came up with a simple and easy to implement fix.
I’m back with another podcast show after a break of litter over 5 weeks. Today’s topic is about a simple solution to solve the H1B Visa lottery selection problem.
During this time of the year, people all excited about H1B Lottery season. I made H1B Visa 2016 predictions and I was expecting maximum of 150,000 application and we ended up getting 233,000 H1B Visa 2016 applications.
Not to say the bet I lost with Immigration Attorney Murali Bashyam. I will tell you more about the that bet in the next episode.
Listen to the Show
So, what do you think about my solution?
Do you think making USCIS not refunding the H1B Visa filing fees will atleast hinder the companies from submitting thousands of applications to increase the number of applications selected in the H1B Visa Random lottery process?
Cost of an large company to file H1B Visa application is around $5000 including the Filing fees with USCIS and Legal cost.
- $5000 * $17,500 = $87,500,000 ( 87.5 Million Dollars)
That’s lot of money right?
I can understand the sentiment when it comes for offshore employee want to get a fair share of coming to USA, but is if fair to select High Skilled Workers by Lottery Process?
Even if the H1B Visa cap is increased to 195,000 there will still be lottery.
Let me know what you are thinking about this lottery and like to hear of you have a feedback or a solution to this H1B Visa lottery process.
