H-1B Cap Update: Initial Adjudications and Data Entry Complete

Our clients strategically used Premium Processing to file a limited number of H-1B cap-subject petitions. We’re thrilled to report that these petitions, many including Level 1 positions, have been approved without an RFE. This is a breakthrough that we have not seen in months!

Working proactively with our clients to develop strong primary and secondary evidence in support of the current requirements for H-1B petitions is having the desired result.

USCIS has also announced that it has completed data entry for all FY2020 H-1B cap-subject petitions. They will now start to return the petitions that were not selected. There will be an announcement when that process is complete.

Unfortunately, USCIS did not provide a specific time frame for when it will return the petitions but said:

“We ask petitioners to wait to inquire about the status of their cap-subject petitions until they receive a receipt notice or an unselected petition that we have returned.”
