H1b got picked in lottery. How long is the lottery result valid without filing petition


My h1b got picked in lottery and i am currently working in h4ead. I am willing to continue working with ead status for a while. How long is this lottery result valid. Can i file h1b petition later with this lottery result ?

Hi Anil,
USCIS gives 90 days for filing petition after the selection. For e.g. the 2nd round that they published yesterday, the selection notice dated 07/29/2021 will state that the petition can be submitted starting 08/02/2021 to 11/03/2021.

Great… thanks for the information. I will delete my answer.
