USCIS Completes Data Entry of Fiscal Year 2017 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") announced on May 2, 2016 that it has completed data entry of all Fiscal Year 2017 2017 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the computer generated random lottery process. USCIS will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. Due to the high volume of filings, USCIS is unable to provide a definite time frame for returning those petitions. USCIS will issue an announcement once all the unselected petitions have been returned. USCIS also announced that it is transferring some Form I-129 H-1B cap subject petitions from the Vermont Service Center to the California Service Center to balance the distribution of cap cases. If your case is transferred, you will receive notification in the mail.
