NewsFlash: H1B Cap Reached!

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that the H1B cap limit for fiscal year 2017 (FY17) has been reached. This applies to both the 65,000 regular H1B cap limit as well as the 20,000 advanced degree (masters) cap exemptions.

As the H1B case filings exceed the allowed limits, the USCIS will conduct a random lottery to select cases for processing. The USCIS cannot provide a date for lottery completion at this time, due to the high volume of case filings. We will provide updated information on H1B lottery and case processing on MurthyDotCom as it becomes available.
