USCIS Completes Data Entry Process for H1B Petitions Selected in FY20 Lottery

Vastavam web: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the data entry process has been completed for all cases selected in the fiscal year 2020 (FY20) H1B lottery. The USCIS will now begin returning all cap-subject petitions that were not selected.

The USCIS notes that, due to the large number of cases filed, the agency is unable to provide a timeframe for how long it will take to return all of the petitions that were not selected. In addition, some H1B cap cases are being transferred between the Vermont Service Center and the California Service Center, in order to balance workloads. If one’s case is transferred, the USCIS will send notification by mail to the petitioner and/or attorney of record.
