WR Immigration Celebrates Clients Selected in Second Round of H-1B Lottery

Aug 2, 2023 | Announcements, Immigration Updates

We are excited to announce that many WR clients have been selected in the second round of the H-1B process. Though many employers and foreign nationals were disappointed after the results of the first round of this year’s lottery, we are now seeing numerous selections from our offices in Boston, New York, Santa Monica, San Diego, and Oakland. 

This great news has lifted the spirits of our employer and foreign national clients who now see a path to a green card. It is particularly welcome news for the foreign national clients who have been preparing for graduating from top U.S. universities without a clear immigration path forward. 

“It would be sad to send some of the best and brightest graduates in STEM, healthcare, and other critical fields back to their countries of origin after graduation,” said managing partner Bernard Wolfsdorf. “These are some of the top graduates from our universities. We need these bright young people to help to grow our economy and keep the US strong.”  

Wolfsdorf also cautioned that green card waiting lines are getting longer. Employers are advised to file their PERM applications as soon as possible. “The H-1B work visa is a dual intent visa, so there is no reason not to get started by filing the PERM green card application,“ said Wolfsdorf.
