USCIS Completes H-1B Lottery Process for FY 2016

USCIS has announced that the H-1B random selection process (also known as the “lottery”) for FY 2016 was conducted on April 13, 2015. Through this computer-generated process, USCIS has selected enough petitions to meet the 65,000 general cap and to meet the 20,000 advanced degree exemption (also known as the “Master’s cap”). USCIS will reject and return all unselected petitions unless the petition is found to be a duplicate filing.

USCIS conducted the selection process for the advanced degree exemption first. All unselected advanced degree petitions then became part of the random selection process for the 65,000 limit.

As announced on March 12, 2015, USCIS will begin premium processing for H-1B cap cases no later than May 11, 2015.

We will update you as additional information becomes available.
