    USCIS today announced that it has finished returning H-1B petitions that were not selected in the FY 2018 cap lottery. Employers with cases not chosen for processing should receive their returned petition packages and fee checks by July 31, 2017.

    USCIS continues to work on pending cap cases and to issue requests for evidence (RFEs). Employers who receive RFEs should work with their Fragomen professionals to quickly assemble any additional facts or documents necessary for a response. The sooner an RFE response is submitted, the greater the likelihood that the case will be decided in time for an October 1, 2017 H-1B employment start date.
