USCIS Selects Final H1B Petitions by Random Selection - Almost a 50% chance for each Application

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that on April 12 it conducted the computer-generated random selection process to determine which H-1B petitions, subject to the congressionally mandated H-1B cap for fiscal year 2008 (FY 2008), would continue to final processing. USCIS completed this determination ahead of the preliminary schedule noted on April 3, when it announced it had received enough petitions to meet the cap for FY 2008.

The 123,480 cap-subject petitions received on April 2 and 3 were labeled with unique numerical identifiers and selected randomly by computer. The chosen numerical identifiers were then transmitted to the appropriate service center for further processing.

Source: USCIS Announcement

Number 123,480 looks a lot better keeping in view initial estimates. A good 50% chance for each application to be selected. 



Update: 3rd May 2007 Hello friends, I understand your anxiety. But don’t loose your hope and/or temper yet. Please wait till you receive either your receipt or your petition itself before concluding anything about your application. It is true that USCIS mentioned every one would receive the receipt or the petition itself in 2 weeks, but it looks like it is taking time.

Mean time, some people are even receiving the approvals. So please wait till you receive something from USCIS before planning any changes in your career paths.

Update: 11th May 2007 By today, USCIS would have sent all receipts/rejected applications to all. Give a week or two to receive the communication. So with in a week or two you will have some kind of final confirmation. Congratulations for all those who got your applications accepted and some even got approved already.

For those who received an SRC number and waiting for the approval status you can check the status of your petition here:
https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/index.jsp
or You may call 1-800-375-5283.

  2. hi
    i have applied for h1b on april 2nd so when should i expect my cap number if its generated luckily by system.

  3. You should receive the receipt within 2 weeks, so by end of this month you would either receive a receipt or returned application.

  4. Is it possible to know in advance for employer which applications has been selected in random selection process i mean does he know about his applications status.

    ReplyDelete
  5. No, not to my knowledge. Until the employer receive the receipt, there is no way to know which are selected and which are not.

  6. If the rejection for this year is due to the random pickup then is there any way the USCIS will mark. Because if applying for the next time that will have the bad effect is they check the previous petitions.

    ReplyDelete
  7. No. Applications that are rejected will not be marked. Infact, no data related to rejected petitions is entered into USCIS systems. So no effect for your further applications.

  9. Hi I have applied for H1 b on April 2nd.
    And its been 23 days already. But my employer says there are no receipt from INS still. Its more than 2 weeks already.
    Are there any chances of the approved reciepts to come last week of April still?
    Because you have told "You should receive the receipt within 2 weeks, so by end of this month you would either receive a receipt or returned application."
    I mean can i hope for some good luck till 30th or has it been decided already?

  10. Can employer eat al of my amount ($3000) if my H1 is rejected??

  12. Hi, One of my friend who applied through premium processing got the confirmation. Aren't the premium applications subject to random selection? Is the final random selection over?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations to those who already received receipts.

    Sonal,
    If your application is rejected, then your employer will get all cheques back. So you can expect to receive all USCIS fees back. But based on my experience, your employer might hold back the amount spent for filing itself (like attorney fee, any edu evaluation or any other expenses etc.). Some employers are giving full amount back to applicants. But this depends on your employer. I do not have any legal background but you should get at least $2600 back.

    Srikanth,
    Premium processing applications are also subjected to this random lottery pick.

    Srikanth,Archana,
    Wait until you receive your receipt or application. Though USCIS initially mentioned as 2 weeks, it might take little more time to dispatch every receipt.

    Wish you all very best and Good Luck.

  17. I got my approval notice for 2008 H-1B visa on April 19, as well as my new I-94 on April 27th. My H-1B visa process is finally completed. What a relieved, huh? I have a new I-94 because I am in my OPT and it will last till Aug 31, 2007. I don't have to leave America to apply for visa since my grace period lasts till Oct 31, 2007. Fortunately, my H-1 visa starts on Oct 1, 2007. It was worth to pay premium process since I didn't have to wait more than a month to know my result. Good luck to everyone.

  18. Hello Friends I have a doubt regarding the random selection process. As USCIS has said that; out of 123,000 applications received, it wud conduct a random selection process. SO here comes the question, How many will USCIS select from those 123,000 through random selection process? is it the final 65,000 cap? or will it select more than 65,000, and then verify all those documents and then decide the applicants who has applied. (OR) to be much simple, say if you got a receipt #, does that mean that you have got the H1 or, what is the next process afte that?

    plzz help me regarding this

    Thanks
    Gouty

    Although random selection is executed on April 12, 2007 but when will USCIS declare the result? This should be open now at least because it's the end of month now.

    USCIS will return all petitions not randomly selected for processing, with the fee(s) to the petitioner or their authorized representative. Final notification of those petitions is expected to occur in May 2007.

    Hi,

    Till now I have not got any receipt.

  35. Hello Shozi,

    If you do premium process, you will know your H-1B result by 15 days. If you do a normal process, you wouldn't know how long your process will take. You have pay extra $1,000 fee to do a premium process.

    For those who have received receipts # AFTER April 12th , you are selected from lottery system. So, your case will be approved as long as you have met the H-1 visa requirements.

    If you received receipts # BEFORE April 12th, the receipt # is not valid. This is because lottery was conducted on April 12th.

  36. H1B Lottery and Advanced-Degree Cap Update
    ©MurthyDotCom
    At the Murthy Law Firm, we are receiving many inquiries about the status of H1B cap-subject filings. Specifically, people are interested in the H1B cap lottery and want to know how they will learn what is going on with their cases filed for fiscal year (FY) 2008. The good or bad news for those subject to the H1B regular cap lottery is starting to arrive. We are continuing to receive receipt notices for our H1B cap subject cases that were selected in the lottery. The notifications for cases not selected in the lottery started to arrive on April 30, 2007. The USCIS has set May 11th as their deadline for issuing regular cap receipt notices. Since there is no online or other list of lottery "winners," we thought it would be helpful to let MurthyDotCom and MurthyBulletin readers know what is happening with the cases in our firm.

    Hi,

    I am also waiting very eagerly for any news from my prospective employer which in turn is waiting response from INS. As today is 8th May already what are odds of acceptance vs. rejection! Just for my mental satisfaction I am asking this :)

    May be they are first processing selected ones and all remainings would be sent later. So late responses mean no selection ?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Friends

    Even my case is the same. I havent received any notifications yet.
    But there is a way you can confirm this.

    Find out from your H1 filer, if the check given to USCIS for processing has been cleared or not.

    This is one sort of confirmation wherein if the check is cleared, most likely the case has been accepted in lottery .

  52. Hi Friends,
    In these postings, selected cases are more than rejected cases, i think non selected cases takes more time to know than selected cases.in my friends 4 are selected,1 rejected and 8 members status is still pending. all these figures indicate that non selected applications taking more time to receive notification(application).

  56. That's true! I'm waiting anxiously like many others. My immigration attorney said not to lose hope as the mailings will be completed tomorrow but will take a few days to arrive by post. So in the early stages of next week, you should either receive a receipt notice or a refusal along with the fees. Best of luck to everybody and keep the fingers crossed.

  70. I think a good way to judge would be, if your cheque has been encashed!
    That would be a sure shot indicator according to me (but dont quote me on this please), if you have been selected or not.
    Cuz they would encash your cheque and start the other processing for you, for others it would make no sense to encash the cheques and then return them....a

    I have received, receipt for my wife on 14th (dated 2nd May). For my application my employer said "still pending". However there is very less hope coz, for my wife our employer informed on 5th May(I guess they know because cheque has been encashed). But my service center is "vermont" and for that last date is 2nd June..thus still hopeing for the best. Better you can also ask your employer which service center is applicable in your case.

    My H1 application was under regular, cap-subject (Non-Masters degree). My employer has informed that the cheque has been encashed (subsequent to Apr 12th, the lottery day) and has also given EAC reference number. When I checked the status of application on the USCIS site using the EAC ref no., it says that the application is still pending but it does not show beneficiary name. But it shows the processing centre as Vermont. Can I presume that I have won the lottery? I am not sure. Is anyone face a similar situation?

  84. Hi Tanya,
    Mine one is also the same case.I got the reciept and spproval as well.But my husband's case is "NO Update" .Now what i can suggest you is that try to get L visa for your husband and then he can work there in US.For this search for a company in India right now so that till march that company can file L visa for your husband and in case his current company can get this for him right now or in OCT it will be a best solution as per my understanding.

  85. shirni,

    please check the date the application was received by uscis in ur case status page. if it is April, 12 or before april 12, then I am afraid u didnot make it. U must be aware of the fact that uscis issued notices prior to the lottery and later invallidated those receipts. so it is vey important to check the date ur application was received by uscis. hope it is after april 12. good luck....

  89. Hi,

    I applied for H1b through premium processing. I fall in the 65k quota. Less than 2 weeks ago my lawyers told me I probably didn't get the H1b because everyone in my company had received their approvals except me, and they had not received anything for me. So I accepted it and moved on to start preparing for plan B thinking for sure it was rejected hence it's taking so long...

    However on May 14 the lawyer let me know they had received a Receipt Notice from the Vermont processing center. They said they will let me know as soon as they get new information. They did not tell me what this means, yes or no.

    What does this mean ??? After receiving this I have become so anxious, it was better when I thought I had been rejected, atleast I wasn't thinking about it all the time.

  90. Hi there,

    Congrats to the winners!

    My lawyer filed my H1B (subject to cap) application via Premium Processing on 4/2/07. But havent heard anything since then... i read in the May 11th Press Release that the extended receipt date does not apply to PP case.. so does it mean those filed via PP should've known the result by now already, regardless it's good news or bad news?

    I got an email from my lawyer on May 9th that they havent heard anything. I'm quite confused here.. Please advise! Thanks!

    but as my husband has got offer from US company, can he get L visa from the same company? and when can he get L visa?
    As my application has selected may be I will fly in Oct 2007.
    So any other way so he can work there.. on H4 or anyother way???

  97. Hi Samay,

    Thanks for your response to my query posted on 15th may. The USCIS status page shows that my application was received by them on May 2 2007 (much much after the lottery day Apr 12 2007). This is becoming more mysterious than Agasta Christie Novels. Where is Hercules Poirot to solve this mystery?

  102. Hi Guys,
    I don't have any idea about my petition which is field at Vermont Service Center. When I enquired my consultant they said 50% of the people have got the petition approval and I am not the one in that list. It got me in to lot of pressure and it is annoying me a lot. Is there anyway that I can get the status of my petition.
    Also is there any alphabetical order of selection that USCIS following for their random selection?. Because so for I heard from our friends the name begins with "S" they havn't received any petition approval.

  114. My employer sent me an email aorund May 8th saying that I have been selected in the lottery process and they would be mailing me my receipt number shortly. Till date I have not received the RECEIPT or the SRC/WAN/LIC number as its called. When I enquired , I was told that they are waiting on the status updates of other applicants , for whom they have received neither an ACCEPT or a REJECT and I need to wait max. till June 15th for the receipt number. So they would take some time to mail me the receipt no. I find this hard to digest that becos they are waiting on other applicants status..they cannot mail me the receipt number?? Is there any other way to find out the receipt number, if you know you have been selected in the lottery process?? Is neone out there in a similar situation?? For now, I jus have my employers word that I was selected in the lottery process..No other proof!!

  120. Hi Tanya,

    No your husband canbot get an L visa from a company unless he had worked for that company continously one year in the last three years....
    so i believe that US consultant cannot file L visa for him ..
    ask him to apply through his current company and if he is there for less than one year then wait for the time to complete one year and then try for that but only a company outside US having workforce of a specific amount and some office in US .... there are so many rules to that Visa.On L visa a person can stay there as much time as u can stay on H. but one can't work on h4 visa so i will suggest you to go for L visa for ur husband and u go on h.Rest is your choice.

  123. Hello guys.

    I got my receipt. My application was filed on 2nd April, got selected and notice date was 2nd May. Finally came to me on 15th May.
    So even if your application is selected its hard to predict when will it reach you!
    2nd June is the last date for issuing receipts, so it may take 2 more weeks to get to you.

    Have patience, best of luck.

    Today i called up USCIS customer service and they didnt inform me about my case status as june 2nd is the last date to receive the receipts(as my case belongs to Vermont center)..
    But i tried and tried finally immigration officer asked my first and last name and checked in the DB, said record not found... :-(

    But he said not to loose the hope becuase there is bulk case voulme,so it takes lot of time to enter the details into the system ,send receipts and encash the cheques..

    So all the best for the guys who are not received any receipts or application back..keeping my fingures crossed..

    wish me luck

  126. Hi all,

    From the messages that have been posted so far, there seems to be a general belief among the candidates that obtaining receipt number (dated after 12th april) means selected in the lottery. In my view nothing can be taken for granted unless an approval notice is received. Though I have got the receipt number (dated May 2, 2007) and the case is still pending at Vermont centre, I prefer to wait till the approval notice is received as presuming things in matters like this, where there is too much at stake, is not a wiser thing. I would suggest the same (not to presume that they have lost on lottery) to even those who are yet to obtain receipt number.

  132. I see people askig time and again that their cheques have been cleared etc etc. If your cheques have been cleared you have made it through the lottery, its as simple as that.
    There might still be a one in a thousand chance that they migth reject you, but encashing of the cheque is a sur shot signal of the fact that you made it through the lottery. So lets not go in this direction again please.....

    As per my best knowledge geting recpt and approval is two different thing, Once u have recpt you have EAC number you can chk your ECA status from this URL
    https://egov.immigration.gov/cris/jsps/index.jsp

    just click on "online" link enter your EAC number. You can also create account and linkup your application(s) with your account, then u will get automatic mail if there is any change in your application status.

    Ramesh,
    I dont thing there is any online way to know that number given to you is belong to you application only...but most closly 2 ways..first you can ask ur recpt copy from ur consultant ..your name should b there OR you can check online your application status and if the type of applicaion is same then u can guess may b its ur only.

    The H1B stamping interviews will be held from October 07 to Sep 08 onwards???
    Or can they be scheduled immediately after the H1B petition approval?
    One of my frnd recently received a approval notice so can he now appear for the interview???

  178. My consultant gave me a reciept number and says mine is picked up in lottery and approved on 5th of June. But when I see the online status in USCIS website, it says 'pending status' with Vermont Service center. Can any one let me know, what is the dead line to get the approval status. what are the chances of my request to get aproved. I am seeing 95% of the cases are approved when i see the status through this website by searching for different reciept numbers.

  187. Hi all,
    Need ur help. Just got the receipt number(on June 11th) and happy after a long wait.(But happy to some extent only). Actually, my employer cudn't submit my I94 form as I had been to India for 3months and came on april 2nd. Now my question is, do my petition goes under query case or do I get approval of H1with out I94(means i shud out of U.S for stamping).

    And if anybody already heard of this case and got h1 with out gng for stamping out of U.S, I wud appreciate if they update me regarding my crucial situation.

    Thanks in advance.

  191. Hi,

    The company through which I filed H1 told me today that neither my application is accepted and nor it is rejected but it is kept on hold by USCIS. It means if any of the selected applications is not valid then USCIS will consider the applications on hold.

    Can anyone please let me know meaning of it ? does it happen with any one ?

    Thanks in advance.

  192. Hi

    My employer filed my H1 on 2nd April at Vermont center. I did not receive any information until now - that is what my employer says.

    Is this the case with anyone else filing at Vermont center? I must have either a receipt or returned application by this time I suppose!

    Please write.
