Not surprisingly, the USCIS announced today that the FY2018 H-1B cap has been met. The USCIS will hold a lottery for the H-1B visas as early as next week. Those selected will receive receipt notices in the mail; those rejected will have their filings returned, along with the filing fee checks. We expect that the receipt notices for those selected will begin to trickle in later this month through most of May; the rejected petitions will take longer to return. The USCIS has not yet released the number of petitions it received. Please check back for updates.
