The H-1B lottery has been completed. USCIS has finished the data entry for all FY 2019 H-1B cap-subject petitions. Musillo Unkenholt continues to see H-1B checks being cashed and continues to receive H-1B receipt notices in our mail. Therefore H-1B cap-subject petitioners should not lose hope yet if they have not received an H-1B receipt notice. We expected that we will continue to see H-1B receipts for the next two weeks.
After the final H-1B receipt notices are sent by USCIS, they will begin returning all H-1B cap-subject petitions that were not selected. In past years it has taken USCIS 1-2 months to complete this process. Musillo Unkenholt does not expect the final H-1B returns until late June or early July.
