USCIS Completes the H-1B Cap Random Selection Process for FY2020

USCIS has confirmed that they have received a sufficient number of petitions projected as needed to reach the congressionally-mandated H-1B Cap (including the U.S. advanced degree exemption or “Master’s” cap) for Fiscal Year 2020. USCIS previously announced on April 5 that it had received enough petitions to reach the congressionally mandated H-1B regular cap of 65,000.

USCIS received 201,011 H-1B petitions during the filing period, which began on April 1, 2019.

USCIS will begin to reject and return filing fees for all unselected cap-subject petitions (with the exception of fees for cases rejected as prohibited multiple filings).
