In this podcast, Meagan Dziura, a member of Ogletree Deakins’ Immigration Practice Group, covers alternatives for employees not selected in the H-1B lottery, given the stagnant number of USCIS selections made for H-1B visas despite an increased demand over the past few years. Meagan discusses potential options for visa applications, including specialty occupation and treaty visas, such as the H-1B1 and E-3 visas, as well as the TN professional and O-1 extraordinary ability visas. Meagan also explores opportunities for applicants in a dependent status, including spousal visas and other employment authorization documents.
