H-1B "cap" reached for FY 2024

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on December 13, 2023 that it has received a sufficient number of H-1B petitions to reach the statutory H-1B visa “cap” for fiscal year (FY) 2024. 

The USCIS announcement states:

    USCIS 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 U.S. advanced degree exemption, known as the master’s cap, for fiscal year (FY) 2024.

    We will send non-selection notices to registrants through their online accounts over the next few days. When we finish sending these non-selection notifications, the status for properly submitted registrations that we did not select for 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.

    We 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. We 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.

No further selections for new H-1B petition filings will take place for FY 2024, and the next registration period for FY 2025 will take place sometime in Q1 2024.
