USCIS has announced the initial H-1B registration selection process for the fiscal year (FY) 2023 is completed. All prospective petitioners with selected registrations have been notified. Registrants’ online accounts will now show one of the following statuses for each beneficiary registered:

  • Submitted: The registration has been submitted and is eligible for selection till the end of the fiscal year, unless subsequently invalidated.
  • Selected: Selected to file an H-1B cap petition.
  • Denied: Duplicate registration - all registrations submitted by or on behalf of the same registrant for this beneficiary for the fiscal year are invalid.
  • Invalidated-Failed Payment: A registration was submitted but the payment method was declined, rejected, disputed, or cancelled after submission.
