USCIS Has Completed Data Entry of FY 2017 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

On May 2, 2016, USCIS announced that it has completed data entry for all FY 2017 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in this year’s lottery. H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected in the lottery are being returned. USCIS is unable to provide a definite time frame for returning petitions and asks that petitioners do not inquire about the status of a case until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition. USCIS will issue an announcement when all the unselected petitions have been returned. In addition, some H-1B petitions are being transferred from the Vermont Service Center to the California Service Center. If a case is transferred, a transfer notification will be sent in the mail.
