FY2017 H-1B Lottery Selection Complete

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 7:00am

USCIS announced May 2, 2016 that it has completed entering the required information for the H-1B cap-subject petitions that were selected in this year’s lottery. USCIS announced that it “will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. Due to the high volume of filings, the time frame for returning these petitions is uncertain. USCIS asks petitioners to not inquire about the status of submitted cap-subject petitions until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition is returned. USCIS will issue an announcement once all the petitions have been returned.”

We will continue to update our clients as we receive receipt notices and/or returned petitions from the USCIS. If you have any questions, please contact your Maggio + Kattar attorney.
