USCIS announced that it completed the H-1B Cap Lottery for FY2016

Posted by Badmus & Associates | Apr 14, 2015 | 0 Comments

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it received about nearly 233,000 H-1B petitions during the filing period, which began April 1, including petitions filed for the advanced degree exemption. On April 13, USCIS used a computer-generated random selection process, or lottery, to select enough petitions to meet the 65,000 general-category cap and the 20,000 cap under the advanced degree exemption.

USCIS will reject and return all unselected petitions with their filing fees. The agency conducted the selection process for the advanced degree exemption first. All unselected advanced degree petitions then became part of the random selection process for the 65,000 limit. USCIS will begin premium processing for H-1B cap cases no later than May 11, 2015.
