CW-1 Cap Update: USCIS Conducts Lottery

USCIS has completed the CW-1 lottery to select enough petitions to meet the annual cap of 4,999 for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI)-Only Transitional Worker (CW-1) program.

USCIS had earlier announced that it would conduct a lottery to randomly select CW-1 petitions received between April 2, 2018 and April 13, 2018, and petitions received after April 13 will be rejected and will not be considered for the lottery.

USCIS has completed data entry for all FY 2019 CW-1 cap-subject petitions selected in the lottery and has returned all petitions that were not selected in the lottery. Petitioners who submitted a CW-1 cap-subject petition between April 2 and April 13, and have not received a receipt notice or a returned petition by May 16, should contact USCIS to find out about the status of their petitions.
