H1B from multiple employer for lottery system

Hi Experts,

There are two employer ready to file my H1-B so in lottery, there will be only one application for me or it would be two separate applications?

should i go ahead and ask both of them to file my H1-B so the chances will increase in lottery?

Many Thanks,


Yes, you can ask both to file for you. But you’ll have to pick one if both get selected. So think of how you will answer the other and consequences if any.

Thanks for your response.

I have one more question as if both petition(from employer A and B) got selected in lottery and I want to go with employer A then I need to ask employer B to withdraw the petition and once the employer B’s petition got withdrawn then only I can go for H1B stamping with employer A So if the employer B refuse my request to withdraw petition then what will happen?

Thanks in advance.


first of all both won’t get selected … how much every h1b filings you do only one filing is taken into consideration for lottery so it won’t increase your chances of getting selected… if you have luck the one that you have been chosen for lottery is picked you’ll go for stamping… Here is the reference
