2015 H-1B cap has been reached

Spread the love

As expected, USCIS has reached the mandated H-1B caps for 2015.  No more H-1B applications will be accepted.  All of our firm's H1B's were timely delivered to USCIS.

The agency will now conduct a lottery to randomly select the petitions needed to reach the caps of 65,000 visas for the general category and 20,000 for advance degrees.  The advance degrees are selected first; anyone with an advanced degree that is not selected gets included int he general group.

Any unselected cap-subject petitions are returned to our office.

Press release from USCIS is available here.
