First Round of Lottery: H1b petition filing for FY 2021

Hi Guys,

My H1b application was picked in first round of lottery. But, due to covid-19 my employer not filed my petition. Now, there was a second round of lottery done recently. So, is it possible to file my petition along with the second round petition filing time.

Thanks in advance…!

Hi Venkat04,

Unfortunately not. Your selection notice had a deadline (June 30). When this deadline is missed you, unfortunately, missed your chance.

The reason for the second lottery was because a lot of people didn’t file hence they had to select additional applicants to replace those who didn’t file.

I know this is not what you might want to hear, sorry about that, Everything happens for a reason.

All the best!

Thank you so much for the update.
