    USCIS Completes the H-1B Cap Random Selection Process for FY 2019

    According to the reports of USCIS, For the fiscal year (FY) 2019, it used a computer-generated random selection process to select enough H-1B petitions to meet the congressionally-mandated cap and the U.S. advanced degree exemption, known as the master’s cap, on April 11th.

    USCIS received 190,098 H-1B petitions during the filing period, which began April 2, including petitions filed for the advanced degree exemption. USCIS announced on April 6, that it had received enough H-1B petitions to reach the statutory cap of 65,000 and the master’s cap of 20,000. It will reject and return all unselected petitions with their filing fees unless the petition is a prohibited multiple filing.

    According to the reports, Master’s cap selection process has been completed first. All unselected master’s cap petitions then became part of the random selection process for the 65,000 cap.

    USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. Petitions filed for current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap, and who still retain their cap number, will also not be counted towards the FY 2019 H-1B cap.

    USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions filed to:

    Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States;

    Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers;

    Allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and

    Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in a second H-1B position.
