As expected USCIS announced today that it has received sufficient H-1B application to meet the H-1B cap as well as the Master’s Cap. Therefore USCIS will conduct a lottery later this month to determine which cases will be accepted for the cap, and which will not, and will be returned with their fees. All application received by the close of business today will be accepted into the lottery. USCIS will finish processing all cases received before proceeding with the lottery. Unfortunately, according to USCIS, because of the high numbers received, USCIS is not sure when they will finish processing the cases. Here is hoping it will not take them to long. We will update you as soon as we hear anything additional.
