USCIS Announces It Has Completed Data Entry for FY2017 H-1B Cases
May 2, 2016
Today, the USCIS announced that it has completed data entry of all fiscal year 2017 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the computer-generated random process and will now begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. Due to the high volume of filings, USCIS is unable to provide a definite time frame for returning these petitions. USCIS will issue an announcement once all the unselected petitions have been returned.
Additionally, USCIS is transferring some Form I-129 H-1B cap subject petitions from the Vermont Service Center to the California Service Center to balance the distribution of cap cases. Petitioners will receive notification if they have a case which is transferred.
