H1b Petition courier marked "Attn: I-129"

Sunnyvale, CA |


My company has filed fresh H1b for the year FY'14. They have shared the courier receipt with me. I can see that the courier is sent to "USCIS California Center" and marked "Attn: I-129". But as per USCIS website, H1B petition should be marked with "Attn:H1B Cap". I am really confused here. Is my application going to get rejected? I am worried.

Thanks for your help.


Thanks for your responses. It helps to know that it will not be rejected. I have one more query - Can i still expect that my petition will be considered for regular "H1B cap" this year? Not sure how USCIS functions. If they just sort petitions based on the "Attn:..." written in courier envelope, then is there any chance that my petition will not be queued for H1B cap applications? Thanks a lot. -paul
