My registration was selected in the first lottery; however, my project fell through, so the employer did not file an H1B petition for me. Since there now has been a second lottery, if a project is available, could that employer use my registration selection from the first lottery to file an H1B for me?


No, it generally would not be permissible to file an H1B petition now based on an unused registration selected in the first lottery. (24.Aug.2023)
