USCIS Completes Data Entry of FY2020 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

USCIS Completes Data Entr…

On May 17, 2019, USCIS finished entering the data of FY2020 cap-subject petitions selected in the lottery. The lottery is a computer-generated, random selection process and includes petitions under the advanced degree exemption. As they have done in the past, USCIS will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. This may take some time due to the large number of petitions USCIS received. Please wait to ask about the status of your cap-subject petition until you receive a receipt notice or your returned petition.

USCIS might transfer some Form I-129 cap-subject petitions between the Vermont Service Center and the California Service Center to increase efficiency by balancing the workload. If your case is transferred, USCIS will send a notice via mail and you will need to send all future correspondence to the center processing your petition.
