Last year, I was laid off from my H1B position and I moved to H-4 status. My previous employer revoked my H1B petition. If I wish to move back to H1B status, do I have to go through the lottery again?


In most situations, once a person has been granted H1B status, that individual is considered to have been “counted against” the H1B cap. This typically means that an H1B may be filed for the person without having to go through the lottery again. (15.Nov.2023)
