USCIS Finishes Data Entry for FY2019 H-1B Cap-Subject Petitions

It’s official! USCIS has completed the data entry for all H-1B cap-subject petitions selected in the lottery. It has now begun to adjudicate petitions.

The petitions not selected and the related USCIS’ filing fees will be returned in a few months.

Since there are so many petitions, the timeline for returning all petitions is unknown. However, the process is usually completed by August.
