USCIS Reaches FY2024 H-1B Cap

Posted by Nishu Sharma | Dec 13, 2023 | 0 Comments

On December 13, 2023, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it has received a sufficient number of petitions needed to reach the congressionally mandated 65,000 H-1B visa regular cap and the 20,000 H-1B visa master's cap for FY2024. USCIS will send non-selection notices to registrants through their online accounts over the next few days.

When USCIS will finish sending these non-selection notifications, the status for properly submitted registrations that were not selected in the FY 2024 H-1B numerical allocations will show:

·       Not Selected: Not selected – not eligible to file an H-1B cap petition based on this registration.

Please note, USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap. Petitions filed for current H-1B workers who have been counted previously against the cap, and who still retain their cap number, are exempt from the FY 2024 H-1B cap.

USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions filed to:

·       Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States;

·       Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers;

·       Allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and

·       Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in additional H-1B positions.
