FY2014 H-1B Cap Update – 04/16/2013
AILA indicates that USCIS has initiated the data entry process for H-1B petitions selected in the lottery. Premium processing cases are being handled first and data entry for those cases should be completed by April 15. Our firm has been receiving Premium processing notices since last week.
Data entry for non-premium processing cases will begin after entries for premium processing cases are completed, likely not until May (like in 2008). Rejection notices for petitions not selected in the lottery will be issued subsequently.
