Understanding the recent changes to the H-1B visa lottery

If you are familiar with the H-1B visa lottery, you may know how competitive the process can be. Prospective employers looking to hire foreign nationals should file for a Labor Condition Application (LCA) before they can petition to join thousands of others in the lottery. Only 85,000 applicants are granted visas, where 65,000 spots are reserved for those with bachelor's degrees, and 20,000 are reserved for those with master's degrees or higher.

Seeking asylum in the United States

When many people arrive in Washington, DC, or other areas of the country, they are often in fear for their lives. Often, they have fled violence in their own home and want nothing more than to set up a new, safe life in the United States. Unfortunately, the process of seeking asylum can seem overwhelming in the best of circumstances, but certainly to those who are trying to cope with the trauma they experienced in their homeland.

Thousands denied visas due to President Trump's travel ban

People from other countries frequently want a visa to allow them to come to Washington, D.C. and other areas in the country. Some may come for temporary reasons, such as tourism, while others want to join a spouse or other loved one permanently. Unfortunately, recently released data shows that President Trump's travel ban has resulted in the denial of thousands of visas.

Change Status out of G-4 to Non-Immigrant Visa

For many G-4 visa holders in the Washington, DC area, after a few years of working for an international organization like the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, or United Nations, they may decide to seek a different non-immigrant visa in the U.S. They may choose to continue their studies as an F-1 Student or even enter the private sector as an H-1B Temporary Worker. However, as members of international organizations, they are entitled to certain immunities and privileges which must be waived before they can officially change status.
