USCIS COMPLETES ITS H-1B CAP SELECTION PROCESS

THIS NOTICE MAY BE RELEVANT TO COMPANIES WHO HAVE FILED H-1B CAP PETITIONS AND FOREIGN NATIONALS WHO HAVE HAD AN H-1B CAP PETITION FILED TO SPONSOR THEM FOR H-1B STATUS EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2014

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has announced that they have completed their data entry of all Fiscal Year 2015 (October 1, 2014 – September 30, 2015) H-1B cap petitions. USCIS will now begin returning all H-1B cap petitions that were not selected in the lottery.

We will continue to monitor all of the H-1B cap petitions we submitted to USCIS on behalf of our corporate clients and will notify the company representatives if we receive an H-1B petition back from the USCIS which was not selected in the lottery.

We also will continue to provide guidance to our clients about alternative options for those foreign nationals who will not receive an H-1B cap number this fiscal year.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact us.
