The H-1B Visa cap of 65,000 visas (and additional 20,000 visas reserved for advanced U.S. degree holders) for fiscal year 2020 was met in just five days in early April this year. As the primary visa route for companies needing to employ highly skilled foreign workers in the United States – this leaves many employers with unfilled demand for foreign talent. They are free to try again next year for FY 2021, but with heavy demand and limited supply, the odds of success next year are likely just as long or longer.

For companies that were unsuccessful in this year’s H-1B process – What are your options?

In this 60-minute webinar, you will get:

  • Latest information and updates on the H-1B process
  • Alternative visa options in the U.S. for highly skilled workers
  • Alternative visa options outside the U.S. – including best countries to locate foreign employees
  • Strategies for creatively utilizing visa options in other countries to temporarily bring employees to the U.S.
  • Answers to your most pressing questions on the H-1B Visa and alternative visas both in the U.S. and abroad

Join us for this examination of U.S. and global visa and immigration options for companies to strategically respond to the tightening immigration climate in the U.S. Your presenters will be top immigration lawyers specializing in both U.S. and global corporate immigration.
