  • H1b visa

    My question is " Are the chances of getting a H1b visa higher with companies like Microsoft,google as compared to some other small companies that do sponsor H1b visa ??"

      As you know there is quota of 20k (for MS) and 65 k others, and if the applications go over these numbers which they normally do, USCIS has a lottery system. The numbers are chosen at random so would not make much difference.
      Being said that, I have heard that BIG companies have some quotas /number of petitions reserved (not sure if it is true)

      The main difference is BIG companies usually have excellent attorneys so it might help make things smoother for applications but won't impact much on the random lottery selection !!!!!

      I hope this helps.

          The random selection is frequently referred to as a “lottery,” but in fact the selection bears no resemblance
          to a lottery. Every properly filed petition received by USCIS is assigned a unique identifier—usually the receipt number. Each unique number is placed in random order on what is essentially a list. Once the position of a particular filing has been randomly determined on that list, the fate of that filing has been
          sealed. It is only the number of petitions that USCIS needs to actually adjudicate that remains to be determined.
