H1B Visa means madness and randomness.
This H1B Visa season is filled with lot’s of sleepless nights for folks waiting to hear the lottery results.
So, far lucky few have received notifications from USCIS. But, very few know that getting selected in Lottery is one thing and getting approval is another whole new ball game.
Before we talk about H-1B Visa approval process, let’s focus the discussion on who deserves H-1B Visa the most?
I selected two comments from this blog post H1b Visa 2015 Daily Updates
Having graduated from Stanford with PhD and working with Google…things are falling into place except when people screw up the **** immigration system…
Didn’t get selected in the random process last year…had to continue with STEM-OPT….and this year no answer so far (AD/PP)…
Why should I go through all this??? Don’t people have little common sense when trying to get an opportunity for themselves….just because you can submit 10 applications with 10 different employers (errr… body shop consultants)…don’t do it…it will come back at you…don’t mess with the system….give everyone a fair chance….
These crappy immigration policies need to be revived…. at least people with masters and PhD’* from US should get a break!!!
Comment 2 :
I never traveled to US. Even I do not have any Business Visa. My petition is pickedup in the lottery through premium processing. but I am little bit concerned about visa stamping. because I applied this visa from the small consultancy. During interview, if they ask any tough questions I might not able to answer. Can you tell me is there any way to bi pass the visa stamping?
So, we have two situations here.
First person have PhD from Stanford University. Now, people who are applying to Universities know what it takes to get admission in Stanford University. Even others, should know a thing or two about getting admission in Stanford.
We have an Highly Skilled person who might not get selected in the H1B Visa Lottery. Which means, he or she have to find another legal way to stay in USA when STEM OPT Expires.
On the other hand, we have a comment from a reader who applied for H-1B Visa via a consulting company from India.
I replied to the comment 2 as follows
Why did you apply for H1B visa then? You know that you have to attend visa interview to come to USA. If you are scared, then you shouldn’t have applied.
Is there any way to bi pass visa interview by traveling to US on B1 or B2?
I hope that person get’s H1B approval and able to get the visa stamping. But, if in case, the person fails to get visa stamping? It’s a wasted H1B Visa slot right?
Who Deserves H1B Visa the Most?
Now, let me generalize above two situations
- H1B Visa Applicant with Advanced Degree from U.S. University
- H1B Visa applicant via an IT Services company
Question to you : Who deserves H1B Visa the most?
