USCIS Announces Completion of FY2019 H-1B Cap Data Entry
On May 15, 2018, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") announced that it has finished the process of data entering all petitions that were selected in the annual H-1B cap lottery for FY2019. We expect to continue to receive H-1B receipt notices for petitions that have been selected over at least the next few days. The USCIS’ announcement also stated that it will begin sending rejection notices for petitions that were not selected in the lottery over the next few weeks. We will continue to notify clients promptly as soon as we know whether their petition is accepted or rejected.
