USCIS ANNOUNCES DELAY IN PROCESSING CAP SUBJECT PETITIONS

Apr 13, 2020 | Uncategorized

On Monday, April 13th, 2020, USCIS announced that, due to COVID-19, petitioners should expect a delay in data entry and receipt notice generation for FY2021 H-1B cap-subject petitions until at least May 1, 2020. Due to this delay, there will be a general delay in processing FY2021 cap-subject petitions.

USCIS also announced that it may transfer some Form I-129 H-1B cap-subject petitions for adjudication between the Vermont Service Center, California Service Center, Nebraska Service Center, and Texas Service Center to balance the workload and enhance efficiencies. However, petitioners should still file their FY2021 H-1B cap-subject petitions at the service center named in their selection notice. If USCIS transfers a case, petitioners will receive notification in the mail. After receiving the notification, please send all future correspondence to the center processing the petition.
