FY H-1B 2012 Update: USCIS Says No Lottery in Break with Tradition
December 2, 2011
As if there were magically the right amount of numbers to match up with the number of FY petitions filed on November 22, 2011, the last date on which the USCIS accepted FY cases, the USCIS announced today that it will not need to hold a lottery of H-1B cap-subject cases filed on that final day of filing for fiscal year 2012 (FY12). Rather, all petitions properly receipted as of November 22 will be issued a receipt number and processed, the USCIS said. We look forward to the data on the set-aside of Chilean and Singaporean numbers to back this up.
