We received alerts from USCIS stating that “we have taken action on your case”. When we signed into USCIS account, we learned that there were some H-1B registrations which were selected in the lottery on August 14, 2020. This is a 2nd lottery draw by USCIS. See the sample notice as shown below.
We received very few selection notices in comparison to registrations submitted. Therefore our conjecture is that very few cases were selected in this 2nd lottery draw.
Until H-1B quota is met for the fiscal year 2021, USCIS will likely issue more selection notices. Perhaps there will be 3rd lottery draw in November 2020 if any visa numbers will still be available. Generally USCIS selects 10-15% more than available visa numbers, this means 3rd lottery draw may not even occur.
Stay tuned for any new update.
