USCIS Completes Data Entry of Fiscal Year 2020 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions


USCIS recently completed data entry for all fiscal year 2020 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in its computer-generated random selection process, including those selected under the U.S. advanced degree exemption.

What Does This Mean?

As in the past, USCIS will be returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that weren’t selected and will issue an announcement once they are done notifying petitioners. Due to the volume of filings, USCIS cannot provide a definite time frame for returning unselected petitions.

The agency asks petitioners to wait until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition before inquiring about the status of their cap-subject petitions that have been returned.

What If My Case was Transferred?

Additionally, USCIS may transfer some Form I-129 H-1B cap-subject petitions between the Vermont Service Center and the California Service Center to balance the workload and enhance efficiencies. If your case has been transferred, you will receive notification in the mail. After receiving the notification, please send all future correspondence to the center processing your petition.
