Is there a way of bypassing the H1B lottery? I was told by an external recruiter that if I joined their London team, after a year I could go through H1B process without the lottery. My preference is to remain with Deloitte and transfer - can Deloitte put me through without the lottery? Are there stipulations such as minimum tenure or degree types etc?

They were probably referring to the option of L1 transfers

@Deloitte1: Many thanks to you for the detailed response. 🙂

Don’t think there is anyway to skip the lottery process if H1B is the aim. If you go to a firm outside US for 1 year as a manager, you can come in on L1 and get your GC process done in EB1 category for the same firm. Employer needs to Continue to be Deloitte

Once you get your GC on Eb1 (2-3 year timelines due to Covid) You are free bird.
