Will USICS send notifications if my petition is not selected in lottery?


#1

My employer filed H1B petition for FY 2019. We have not heard anything from USICS yet, not sure whether the petition is selected in lottery or not. Will USICS send any notification even if the petition is not picked in lottery?

Hi,
USCIS will never send any Notifications to employer’s if their candidates H1-B applications not picked-up in Lottery. So your employer need to wait until they get the H1-B Application packet back from USCIS Service Center.

The only way your employer can know whether application picked or not by reading the “Cheque Status” submitted for your application. If it’s not cleared sometime in June then you can consider application is ready for return.
