Lawsuit Seeks Clarity in H-1B Lottery

Every year on the first business day of April, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) make available a limited amount of H-1B nonimmigrant visas for U.S. employers to hire experienced foreign professionals. The available visas are capped at 65,000 for new hires and 20,000 for those who have earned a master's or doctoral degree from a U.S. university. It should come as no surprise that over the last several years the demand for H-1B visas has far exceeded the allotted available. Most years, the cap is reached within 5 business days. When USCIS deems that they have received enough applications to meet the limits, a "lottery" system kicks in to ensure that all visas are allocated.
