H-1B lottery change may drive increase in visa applicants
Charlotte Immigration Associate Amanda Franklin was quoted in the TechTarget article titled, “H-1B lottery change may drive increase in visa applicants.”
Franklin expects filers to try to register March 1, the day the system opens. "The government's ability to keep their technology up and running with high volume is notoriously bad," she said.
"There's a lot of concern and a lot of questions about how this is going to work, and if it doesn't work, then what?" Franklin said.
Franklin isn't sure the registration system itself will encourage more employers to file H-1B visa petitions. If employers want to hire someone, they're going to do what they need to do, whether it's a paper-based application or an electronic one, she said.
