USCIS Completes Data Entry of All FY 2016 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on May 4, 2015, that it has completed data entry of all fiscal year 2016 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in a computer-generated random process. USCIS will begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. The agency noted that due to the high volume of filings, the time frame for returning these petitions is uncertain, so USCIS would prefer not to receive queries in the meantime. USCIS will issue an announcement once all the unselected petitions have been returned.
