H-1B Visa Lottery Results Updates

Raghuram Sukumar H1B and H4 Visa

Update 2013: There is a long delay in the processing of H-1B visa applications this time. I know a few who got RFEs in October for applications filed in April in regular processing. It’s easier to update to premium processing then to wait (if possible).

June 2 was the deadline set by the USCIS to send all the receipt numbers to H-1B visa applications selected in the lottery.

It was D-Day for many H-1B visa applicants who are still waiting to hear about their H-1B visa lottery results.

But so many comments in the articles in this blog say different stories.

  1. Majority of the applications filed under premium processing heard about their results
  2. H-1B visa applications submitted in regular processing results are not 100% available
  3. Some of the checks have been cleared, indicates their H-1B applications have been selected in the lottery
  4. But those whose checks have been encashed by USCIS are yet to get their receipt numbers
  5. No one has received any rejection notice so far.

From above views, I certainly feel the USCIS has not yet completed processing all applications selected under the lottery.

If the USCIS was able to process all the applications that were selected in the H-1B visa lottery, then those applications should have received their receipt numbers by now.

So we just have to wait for 2-3 more weeks to know what’s the status of the H-1B lottery results.
