H-1B Lottery Completed
that it has received enough electronic registrations to reach the FY2022 H-1B cap, including the master’s cap. USCIS has completed the random selection process and notified prospective petitioners.
Registrants’ online accounts will now show one of the following statuses for each registration:
- Submitted: A registration status may continue to show “Submitted” after the initial selection process has been completed. “Submitted” registrations will remain in consideration for selection until the end of the fiscal year, at which point all registration statuses will be Selected, Not Selected, or Denied.
- Selected: Selected to file an FY 2021 H-1B cap-subject petition.
- Denied: A duplicate registration was submitted by the same registrant for the same beneficiary, or a payment method was declined and not reconciled. If denied as a duplicate registration, all registrations you submitted for this beneficiary for the fiscal year are invalid.
Only petitioners with selected registrations may file H-1B cap-subject petitions for FY 2021, and only for the beneficiary in the applicable selected registration notice.
