BAL Analysis: Petitions that were not selected will be returned along with the filing fees. For petitions selected in the lottery, employers should continue to anticipate receiving decisions on premium-processed H-1B cap-subject cases by the end of May and to wait until summer for decisions on regular-processed cases.
