On July 8, 2016, USCIS announced that it had returned every H-1B petition not selected in its computer-generated lottery. USCIS stated in its press release that if employers have not received either a receipt notice or a returned petition by July 22, 2016, they should contact USCIS at Contact US. If you have any questions about the H-1B lottery process, please contact our office. Thank you to everyone who worked with us. And congratulations to all who were selected. We look forward to the opportunity to continue serving your immigration needs.
