USCIS Completes FY 2020 H-1B Cap-Subject Data Entry
Yesterday, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the agency has completed data entry for all fiscal year 2020 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the lottery. USCIS is still issuing receipt notices as a result of the computer-generated selection process. We received a notice yesterday, so please note that others may be forthcoming. Once all petitioners are notified, USCIS will start returning unselected petitions and issue an announcement. There is no time frame in which this will happen. Notifications of case transfers have also started to be issued, which is commonly done by the agency to balance workload. Please continue to check in with your attorney regarding your H-1B petitions.
