H-1B lottery done

By April 16, 2008H1-B, News & Press

The USCIS has finished conducting the H-1B lottery for both the 20,000 and the 65,000 cases.

They have also “wait listed” certain cases, ie if the any chosen case is withdrawn or denied, these wait listed cases will fill their place. These cases will be held at the CIS office for now.

The CIS will now begin fee receipting and sending out the receipt notices. The cases not chosen will be returned. Since this involves a huge volume, the CIS stated that this process can take upto June 2nd. So this process will take about 6-10 weeks.

We will inform our clients immediately upon receipt of the receipt notices or the petitions back. Keeping our fingers crossed….
