USCIS RECEIVED 172,500 H-1Bs

by Chris Musillo

The USCIS has just announced that it received 172,500 H-1B cap-subject petitions for this year’s H-1B cap. The H-1B cap is 85,000, of which 20,000 are reserved for graduates of US Masters Programs. Essentially the USCIS received 200% of the H-1B cap allocation. Put another way, only 50% of the H-1B petitions will be accepted under the H-1B lottery.>

The USCIS has inputted all 172,500 and processed the H-1B lottery for both the H-1B masters cap and the H-1B regular cap. The USCIS has not yet announced when it will notify H-1B lottery winners and losers, although the Premium Process Service petitions should start being notified by April 28.

A higher percentage of masters cap H-1B petitions are accepted than H-1B regular cap petitions because H-1B master cap petitions that do not win the H-1B masters lottery are re-submitted into the H-1B regular cap lottery.>

As soon as MU Law begins receiving confirmation of H-1B lottery winner and losers will immediate contact our clients.
