    I know about the L-1 visa, which you get if you're in a non-US company which transfers you to their US branch ... Although I am currently in such a company, I doubt I'll get transferred anytime soon, as I'm not that high up the food chain .. :/

    Hence why I'm asking what other options I have ..

    And if it is the case that H1-B is the only route, then I guess I have to get selected by Microsoft ? .. I say this because they're the main guys who get most of the quote in that 65k limit, as far as I know .. :/

    A little bit about me:

    I'm currently in South East Asia, and did my Bachelors in Computer Engineering from one of the top universities here .. I then did my Masters from Georgia Tech in the US via Fulbright Scholarship (again in Computer Engineering), so my academics are quite strong I think ... I'm in the software development industry, and have been working in my country for the past 1.5 years ..
    You are pretty much right. First you will need to find an employer willing to sponsor your H1. A new H1 can only be processed after April 2013 as current year quota is over and if successful, you can work in US only from Oct 2013. This is my opinion not legal advice.
