United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has confirmed the return of all H-1B cap-subject petitions filed in April 2019 that were not selected for processing under the annual lottery.  The rejected petitions have been returned to petitioners or their immigration legal counsel with the filing fees.  Any petitioners that have not received either receipt notices for their H-1B petitions filed under the cap or the rejected petitions with filing fees, should follow up with the USCIS.  Also, while the new H-1B filing season is not until April 1, 2020, it is not too early to start planning cap-subject petition submissions and discussing related filing strategies with your immigration attorneys.
