Update: USCIS has Completed Data Entry for FY 2016 H-1B Petitions

 

USCIS announced on May 4, 2015, that it had completed data entry of all fiscal year 2016 H-1B cap-subject petitions selected through its computer-generated random process. At this time, USCIS will now begin returning all unselected H-1B cap-subject petitions. 

Due to the high volume of filings, the time frame for returning these petitions remains uncertain. The agency has asked petitioners to not inquire about the status of submitted cap-subject petitions until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition is returned. USCIS will issue an announcement once all petitions have been returned.
