USCIS Completes Data Entry of H-1B Cap Subject Petitions
USCIS has completed data entry for all fiscal year 2019 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the computer-generated random selection process (H-1B “lottery”). USCIS will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected.
Due to the high volume of filings, USCIS cannot provide a definite time frame for returning unselected petitions. USCIS asks petitioners not to inquire about the status of their cap-subject petitions until USCIS issues an announcement that all unselected petitions have been returned.
