    If you are Software Engineer, then yes for both. Not only H1B but also Green card. If you are sales/marketing/HR/legals, etc, then no.

      Thanks, just to confirm. Do you mean new H1B? I'm an Software Engineer.

      If you have OPT for buffer, then yes.

      Ok. Thanks. I don't have OPT. I'm outside of the US. When do you suggest to apply?

    Depending on where you are, it's probably more likely that you'll work from a remote site for a year and then transfer to SF or NYC on L1

    Are they going to sponsor h1b any more considering what happens with current immigration and chances of being picked up in lottery? Backlog is 200k, only 60k will be chosen...
