📰 USCIS Reaches Fiscal Year 2024 H-1B Cap

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. 


U.S. businesses use the H-1B program to employ foreign workers in specialty occupations. We encourage H-1B petitioners to subscribe to the H-1B cap season email updates by visiting the H-1B Cap Season page.
