H1B抽签改革生效,变化影响有多少?

/ 0 Comments

2019年1月30日早上,美国国土安全部公布了广受关注的H1B抽签改革新政,并会于2019年4月1日起正式生效。

这次的新政先前于2018年12月3日公布草案,详情请见宋和孟律师事务所的上一篇相关文章《H1B抽签改革,究竟是喜是忧》。

这次正式公布的H1B抽签改革方案,从对今年2019年的影响上来看,简单归纳来讲,主要是两点

  • 抽签顺序的变化今年立即生效,即美国研究生学位者先和所有人一起抽签,抽不上的在研究生群体中再用研究生名额抽签,这样的抽签顺序变化,可以增加有美国研究生学位者大约16%的中签几率。
  • 电子注册系统延后执行,也就是说,今年2019年的抽签方式照旧,先递材料后抽签。在先前的草案中,国土安全部提出了先通过电子注册系统进行登记注册,抽上者再行递件的方案。在大家的评议反馈中,国土安全部决定今年抽签的H1B暂不使用新方法。

由于电子注册系统暂不执行,所以对于今年抽签的申请人而言,具体要做的事项和往年申请的流程没有变化。孟小洁律师提醒各位今年的申请人,目前已经进入二月,建议开始尽快抓紧准备今年的材料。
