FY 2016 H1B Cap Filings: USCIS Returns Petitions Not Selected In The H1B Lottery

USCIS has announced that on July 14, 2015, it has completed processing the return of FY 2016 H1B Cap-subject petitions that were not selected in the H1B Lottery.

Employers who have submitted an H-1B Cap-subject petition between April 1 and April 7, 2015, have been advised to contact USCIS if they do not receive a receipt notice or a returned petition by July 20, 2015.

With the H-1B cap exhausted, employers (except cap-exempt organizations) desirous of filing new H1B petitions will now have to wait until April 1, 2016 to be able to file again for a start date no sooner than October 1, 2016.
