H-1B Lottery Visa

Your Gateway to Working in the USA

The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows U.S. companies to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations requiring theoretical or technical expertise. Each year, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) conducts an H-1B lottery to select a limited number of applicants due to the high demand for this visa. At Trivup, we guide you through the entire H-1B lottery process, helping you maximize your chances of success.

What is the H-1B Lottery?

The H-1B lottery is a randomized selection process that USCIS uses to select a certain number of H-1B visa petitions each fiscal year. The lottery consists of two main parts:

Regular Cap

This is the primary pool for the lottery, with 65,000 visas available annually.

Advanced Degree Exemption

An additional 20,000 visas are available for applicants who hold a U.S. master’s degree or higher.

Key Features of the H-1B Visa

At Trivup, we take pride in our strategic partnerships with some of the leading free zones and business hubs in the UAE. Our channel partnerships with Sharjah Media City (SHAMS), IFZA Dubai, Sharjah SPC, Ajman Freezone, and RAKEZ enable us to offer unparalleled support and opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses looking to establish and grow in the UAE.

Key Features of the H-1B Visa

Specialty Occupations

The H-1B visa is intended for jobs that require specialized knowledge and a bachelor’s degree or higher in the specific field. Common fields include IT, engineering, science, and healthcare.

Employer Sponsorship

Applicants must have a job offer from a U.S. employer who will act as their sponsor throughout the visa process.

Validity Period

The H-1B visa is typically valid for up to three years, with the possibility of extension for a maximum of six years.

The H-1B Lottery Process

Employer Registration

U.S. employers must first register electronically with USCIS during the designated registration period, usually in March.

Lottery Selection

USCIS conducts the lottery and selects the required number of petitions from the registered candidates. Selected candidates are then notified to proceed with their full H-1B petition.

Petition Filing

Employers of selected candidates file the complete H-1B petition, including supporting documents and filing fees, within the specified timeframe.


USCIS reviews the petitions and makes a decision. Approved petitions result in the issuance of an H-1B visa, allowing the foreign worker to begin employment in the U.S. from October 1st of the fiscal year.

How to Register for the H-1B Cap Lottery

For international employees hoping to file for an H-1B visa whose occupation is subject to the cap, they will need to register with USCIS electronically to enter a lottery. To do this, the prospective H-1B employee and sponsoring employer will need to create online accounts with USCIS. If a prospective employee already has a myUSCIS online account, they will still need to create a separate “registrant” account that is required for the registration process.

During the registration process, the prospective H-1B employee (or U.S. employer, representative, or attorney acting on their behalf) must pay a $10 registration fee. Registration also includes filling in basic information about the sponsoring company, as well as biographical details about the registrant. 

The registration period only runs for around 14 days each year. If an applicant doesn’t register but their occupation is not exempt from the cap, they will not be able to apply for the H-1B visa.

How much does it cost to register for the H-1B visa lottery?

There is a $10 registration fee per registrant. The fee is non-refundable, even if you are not selected in the lottery.

How much does an H1B visa cost?

All H-1B cases, including H-1B extensions, require the $460 USCIS fee and the Office of International Affairs $1,500 fee.
