ANOTHER H-1B NONIMMIGRANT VISA LOTTERY IS LOOMING: NOW IS THE TIME TO START TO THINK ABOUT YOUR H-1B BACK-UP PLAN.

Last year, at about this time, the USCIS announced that it has received 172,500 H-1B petitions for the fiscal year 2015 which began on October 1st, 2014. The H-1B lottery (also referred as "random selection process") is likely to be conducted again this year and, in a few weeks, the USCIS will begin to send out H-1B receipt notices.

SUBMITTING AN H-1B PETITION ON APRIL 1st: WHAT PROSPECTIVE H-1B EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES NEED TO KNOW? [Part II]

Although the U.S. economy slowed down a bit during the fourth quarter of 2014, recent reports suggest that it would pick up again because of continued job growth, consumer confidence and spending increases.
