Another year, another cap season.

With the FY 2021 H-1B cap season approaching, it’s the perfect time to brush up on the H-1B lottery. The visa petition process for an H-1B is highly competitive, and in recent years, employers have seen an uptick in requests for evidence, adding a new layer of complexity to applications.

Due to these challenges, early preparation is crucial for employers who want to secure work authorization for their foreign-born employees.

About This Webinar

Envoy Global and its affiliated law firm, Global Immigration Associates, will explain how the H-1B lottery works and walk attendees through the petition process.

Other topics of discussion include:

  • Important dates for the FY 2021 H-1B lottery
  • H-1B extensions
  • Practice pointers for employers
  • ...and more!
