Premium Processing is Suspended and Timeline
Biggest impact this year will be due to suspension of Premium Processing. Previous years with lottery there was a set pattern of events.
What Else Do You get?
You are going to go through various stages and every new update that's coming form USCIS will lead to more questions.
USCIS announced they reached the cap and you are going to ask
"How is Lottery confirmed, there's no mention of word Lottery in the announcement"
A week later, you are going to ask,
"How do I know if My application is selected in the lottery?"
"My friend applied from the same company, he came to know the result, but I haven't heard anything"
"How do I know for 100% if my employer applied for H1B"
And the list goes on and the questions will continue until Premium Processing resumes or Approvals starts to come.. several months from now.
Not to mention the some unique and uncommon scenarios that I have observed, documented for the previous year Lottery Process.
This H1B Visa Lottery Guid should give answers to your most common questions (& contents are updates as more updates from USCIS are published).
