The USCIS H-1B Lottery Process


Dear Stakeholder,

On Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm EDT, the Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman will host a teleconference to discuss the USCIS H-1B lottery process. 

On April 11, 2018, USCIS used a computer-generated selection process to select H-1B petitions to meet the congressionally-mandated cap for fiscal year 2019.  USCIS officials will explain how it processed over 190,000 H-1B petitions received during the brief filing period.  We'll look at how businesses prepare for the H-1B cap filing season and offer suggestions on how USCIS can improve the process.   

We will reserve time at the end of our teleconference to take questions and feedback from the public regarding the H-1B lottery process. 

We invite the public to register for this important teleconference using the link below.
