USCIS Message: H-1B Cap Reached

Posted by Badmus & Associates | Apr 08, 2015 | 0 Comments

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services announced on Monday afternoon that it has reached the H-1B cap for FY2016.

Before running the lottery, USCIS will complete initial intake for all filings received during the filing period. USCIS will first randomly select petitions for the advanced degree exemption. All unselected advanced degree petitions will become part of the random selection process for the 65,000 general limit. The agency will reject and return filing fees for all unselected cap-subject petitions that are not duplicate filings.

Due to the volume of petitions received, USCIS is not able to determine at this time when the random selection will be done. For more information, please click here.
