H1B lottery selected and Validity

Recommended Posts

My friends employer has applied for H1B and was selected in lottery 2014. He had to go to UK for a year for a project. So he could not come to US. Now the situation is the employer is delaying his US Visa interview. Please answer the following questions.


1.How long the lottery selection is valid ?

2.Is there any way to get a copy of I797 from USCIS if employer is not sharing the information?

Is the I-797 approved?

His application is selected in lottery and employer is holding the approved I797. Employer is not giving him a copy of I797.

I understand I797 lottery selection is not specific to a employer but favors employee. Please correct me if I am wrong.

The lottery selection is valid until the expiry date mentioned on the approved copy. Try to contact customer care and may be you can get a copy.
