The filing period for H-1B petitions selected for the FY2023 cap opened on April 1, 2022, and will run through June 30, 2022. AILA has received several reports of delays in receipt notice issuance for H-1B petitions filed with the Vermont Service Center, including some petitions filed in early April for which no receipt notice has been issued to date. We have reached out to USCIS about the delays and will update our practice alert as more information becomes available.
Employers and their attorneys were electronically notified by USCIS if an employee’s registration was selected during the initial registration period. Registrations not selected in the initial lottery will be put on a wait-list and more registrations may be randomly selected during the fiscal year.
