USCIS to Conduct Additional H-1B Cap Registration Selection for FY 2024

In March 2023, USCIS conducted an initial random selection on properly submitted electronic registrations for the fiscal year (FY) 2024 H-1B cap, including beneficiaries eligible for the advanced degree exemption. Only those petitioners with selected registrations for FY 2024 were eligible to file H-1B cap-subject petitions during the initial filing period from April 1, 2023, through June 30, 2023.

The second Random Selection Coming Soon

USCIS recently determined that we would need to select additional registrations to reach the FY 2024 numerical allocations. Soon, USCIS will select additional registrations from previously submitted electronic registrations using a random selection process.

Notification of Selection

USCIS will announce once they have completed this second selection process and have notified all prospective petitioners with selected registrations from this round of selection that they are eligible to file an H-1B cap-subject petition for the beneficiary named in the applicable selected registration.

Filing Details

Those with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which includes details of when and where to file.
