USCIS Fiscal FY 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.  

USCIS will send non-selection notices to registrants through their online accounts over the next few days. When USCIS finishes sending these non-selection notifications, the status for properly submitted registrations that were not selected 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. 

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.
