H-1B Cap Reached

 

On April 7, after only five business days into the filing season, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it had already received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory caps for both the 65,000 regular cap and for the 20,000 cap for U.S. advanced degree holders for fiscal year (FY) 2015 (October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015). For those petitions received between April 1 and April 7, USCIS will conduct a computer-generated random selection process. Petitions not randomly selected for H-1B processing will be rejected, and the filing fees will be returned. We expect this random selection process to take place within the next few weeks.
