H-1B Visa Lottery Selection is Reached

Statistics: 190,098 H-1B visa petitions filed in this visa lottery

95,885 of those H-1B petitions will be in the Master’s cap

 

Process: The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will:
begin issuing filing receipts, which typically are received before the end of May
will return the H-1B visa petitions not selected in the H-1B visa lottery (typically, end of May- July)
begin to adjudicate the H-1 selected H-1B visa petitions (typically, until October)
