U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Wednesday that it has received enough petitions to reach congressionally mandated H-1B caps. This means there will not be a third H-1B lottery this fiscal year.
Additional Information: USCIS completed its initial lottery of H-1B cap-subject registrations in March, selecting 110,791 of 758,994 eligible registrations. The agency completed a second lottery in July, selecting an additional 77,609 eligible registrations, significantly more than it has selected in second lotteries in past years. Employers are encouraged to work with their BAL attorney to consider alternatives for registrations that were not selected.
This alert has been provided by the BAL U.S. Practice Group.
