On March 27, 2023 USCIS announced that it has received enough electronic registrations during the initial registration period to reach the FY2024 H-1B cap and master's cap. A random selection was made and all successful registrants have now been notified of selection.
Those who entered registrations for the FY2024 H-1B cap and master's cap will now see one of the following statuses in their online account:
- Submitted - The registration has been submitted and is eligible for selection. The registration will remain available for selection if USCIS chooses to run additional selections later in the year
- Selected - The registration has been randomly selected to file an H-1B petition.
- Denied - Multiple registrations were submitted by or on behalf of the same registrant for the same beneficiary. If denied as a duplicate registration, all registrations submitted by or on behalf of the same registrant for this beneficiary for this year's registration are invalid.
- Invalidated-Failed Payment - A registration was submitted but the payment method was declined, not reconciled, disputed, or otherwise invalid.
Selected registrants will be able to file their H-1B petition beginning April 1, 2023. The selection notice in a registrant's online account will give instruction as to where the petition must be filed. All petitions must be filed with USCIS no later than June 30, 2023.
Contact the Law Offices of James D. Eiss today if you have been selected in this years registration and plan to file an H-1B petition.
