H-1B Cap Lottery Completed
Yesterday, on March 29th, USCIS announced that the H-1B random selection (lottery) process has concluded and that it has informed registrants and attorneys of the selection result through “MyUSCIS” accounts.
- By Friday, 4/01/2022: ILG will notify all SELECTED candidates and their employer by email.
- Employers who selected ILG’s “Full Case Prep” option will see their cases filed by 4/21/2022 (first 15 business days of the filing period).
- Employers who selected ILG’s “Partial Case Prep” option will see their cases filed by 6/30/2022.
- By Monday, 4/04/2022: ILG will notify employers of the candidates who were NOT SELECTED.
Those who were not selected will likely have two more chances of being selected. Last year, USCIS conducted a second round random selection process on July 29th and selected an additional 27,717 registrations. USCIS then conducted a third round on Nov. 19th and selected an additional 16,753 registrations.
Finally, due to heavy caseload during this time and our interest in notifying all clients in the most efficient manner, we are asking clients to refrain from making inquiries about e-registration selection before 04/05/2022. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
