The regular lottery will be conducted first, giving those with a US master’s or higher degree a second and better chance of winning the H-1B lottery. The annual quota for initial H-1B visa allotments remain unchanged at 85,000.
“The proposed process would result in an estimated increase of up to 16 per cent (or 5,340 workers) in the number of selected H-1B beneficiaries with a master’s degree or higher from a US institution of higher education,” stated USCIS in statement released late on Friday night.
