USCIS completes processing of 2019 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

USCIS has completed processing all fiscal year 2019 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the computer-generated random selection process. USCIS will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. USCIS cannot provide a definite time frame for returning unselected petitions, due to the high volume of filings. USCIS has asked petitioners not to inquire about the status of their cap-subject petitions until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition is returned. USCIS has also stated that they may transfer some Form I-129 H-1B cap subject petitions between the Vermont Service Center and the California Service Center, in order to balance the distribution of cap cases. USCIS will notify any petitioner by mail if one of their cases is transferred, after which all future correspondence should be sent to the center processing the petition.
