USCIS Confirms a FY2018 H-1B Cap Lottery
USCIS confirms the process for receiving and receipting H-1B cap cases for Fiscal Year 2018 will be the same as with prior years, including a random lottery. If 65,000 H-1B Regular Cap and / or the 20,000 U.S. Masters Cap are received between April 3-7, 2017.
As in the past, a random computer selection will be run first for those petitions under the 20,000 U.S. Master’s cap exemption. Any petitions not selected for the U.S. Master’s cap will then be included in the random selection process for the 65,000 regular cap.
