FAQ: USCIS received 233,000 H-B petitions in the H-1B FY 2016 Quota

FAQ: USCIS received 233,000 H-B petitions in the H-1B FY 2016 Quota

 

USCIS received almost 233,000 H-1B petitions during the H-1B FY 2016

cap filing period, which began on April 1, 2015. This number includes

petitions filed for theadvanced degree exemption. On April 13, 2015,

USCIS used a computer-generated random selection process, or lottery,

to select enough petitions to meet the 65,000 general-category cap and

the 20,000 cap under the advanced degree exemption.

 

Question: Do we know how many H-1B petitions were filed under the

statutory cap of 65,000 visas (Bachelors quota) and how many were

filed under the advanced degree exemption (Masters quota)?

 

Answer: Today’s notice does not specify how many petitions were filed

under the Bachelors quota and how many were filed under the Masters

quota. We will come to know the same in a week’s time.

 

Question: When do we get the receipt notices?

 

Answer: Though USCIS concluded the lottery today, April 13, 2015, it

will take about a month’s time for all the receipt notices to be

issued.

 

Question: Does that mean that premium processing starts from today?

 

Answer: No. As indicated by USCIS, premium processing for H-1B cap

cases will begin no later than May 11, 2015.
