Happy April 1st, the day where hope of a coveted H-1b visa still feels in reach. Due to April 1st falling on a Saturday, the H-1b cap period this year begins on Monday April 3rd and all cases received between Monday and Friday April 7th, will be included in the lottery. Information about the cap being reached, the lottery being conducted and the commencement of receipts being mailed out can all be found on this very helpful USCIS page. I hope you all get a receipt !
