H1B : Filing a I-129 form for new petition after preview petition did not make it through lottery


Recommended Posts

Last year (for FY2015), my employer filed a petitiom for H1B but it did not make it through the lottery. When USCIS sent back the application, the attached a letter with a receipt# (but no applicant/petitioner #), telling us that the petition was received but did not made it to through lotlery. Therefore the petition was neither approved nor denied as it did not make through the lottery


We are filing a new petition for FY2016 and we are wondering if the FY2015 petition is considered as a file petition despite the rejected because of the lottery and if we should refer to it in the new I129 form which mention it (Part 2 Q3 and Part 4 Q9) ?
