Hi all ,
I have been working for a Japanese company in Tokyo for more than 2 years, and Its NYC branch wants to sponsorize me . Hence, my employer applied for the H1B visa 2015. Yesterday , it was said that there will be a lottery , and meanwhile , I realized that I may be eligible for the L1 visa ( could you confirm ?). If I am not selected during the lottery , could I apply for the L1 visa ?
My second question is regarding the lottery itself. Within the regular cap, are all applicants chance equally distributed ? Does it depend on the applicant nationality ?
