Unlike o1 visa (also known as o1签证), there is a lottery for h1b visa (also known as h1b签证) applications. At present, the annual h1b lottery (also known as h1b抽签) is over, and everyone is anxiously waiting for the lottery result. In addition to the immigration office’s receipt notice, there are other ways to check whether you have won the lottery.
This is accepted the most reliable certificate of winning the lottery! Upon completion of the lottery, the immigration office sends a Receipt Notice to the applicant in writing, which is usually sent to the agent’s law firm or the company where the application is made. In general, students who apply for urgent service will receive notice soon if they win the lottery. Those who do not apply for urgent service will need to wait patiently.
This is also a common query method. After h-1b is selected, the immigration office will accept the case, so it is natural that the applicant’s h1b application fee (check) will be officially cashed. If you want to know whether you have won the contract, you can contact your lawyer or inquire through the financial department of the company to see whether the check issued by the submitted h-1b application has been cashed. If it has been cashed, congratulations! You are winning!
If h-1b is selected, the student Status in the SEVIS system will Change from Active to Change of Status Pending, and the Receipt Number of h-1b application can be seen. You can check it through the school’s international student office (ISSO or DSO) or by calling the SEVIS system at 703-603-3400, where you will need to provide your SEVIS number, name, date of birth, school, etc.
Of course, if you apply for h1b through Luoassociates, NYIS Law Firm(also known as纽约小纽), Zeng Law Group(also known as锦晖律师事务所), Ying Cao law Firm(also known as英卓律师事务所) and other law firms, you will receive the notification of lawyer’s email in the first time after you win the visa, which is relatively easier.
