Alternatives to the H-1B Visa Lottery

Companies submit tens of thousands of applications by April 1 each year for the limited number of H-1B visas available annually to foreign workers they want to hire. Demand far exceeds supply, meaning that the majority of applicants are not successful in the visa lottery conducted by US Citizenship and Immigration Services to distribute these coveted visas. Additionally, the government is seeking more proof from companies that the foreign worker’s skillset is needed and unavailable domestically. Given the high rate of failure to secure an H-1B visa on behalf of a potential foreign hire, what alternatives do companies have to bring these potential employees and their needed skills on board? What are some of the challenges in the current H-1B visa process, and how can you plan for future years staffing and visa requirements?

Please join Richard F. Verstegen as he explains the H-1B visa process, alternate authorities to hire foreign workers, and other strategies to hire and retain foreign talent for your organization.
