Update 2013 : There is long delay in processing H1B visa applications this time. I know few who got RFE in October for applications filed in April in regular processing. Its easier to update to premium processing then to wait (if possible)
June 2 was the deadline set by USCIS to send all the receipt number to H1B Visa applications selected in the lottery.
It was D-Day for many H1B Visa Applicants who are still waiting to hear about their H1B Visa Lottery result.
But, so many comments in the articles in this blog say different story.
- Majority of the applications filed under Premium Processing heard about their results
- H1B Visa applications submitted in Regular processing results are not 100% available
- Some of the check have been cleared, indicates their H1B applications have been selected in lottery
- But, those checks that have been cashed by USCIS are yet to get the Receipt Number
- No one has received any rejection notice so far.
From above view, I certainly feel, USCIS have not completed processing of all applications selected under Lottery.
If they were to process all the applications that were selected in H1B Visa Lottery, then those applications should have received their Receipt Number. So, we have to wait for 2-3 more week to know whats the status of H1B lottery results.
