USCIS Announces Second Random Selection from Previously Submitted FY 2024 H-1B Cap Registrations

Random selection

On July 27, 2023, USCIS announced that it will conduct a second random selection from previously submitted electronic registrations for the fiscal year (FY) 2024 H-1B cap, including beneficiaries eligible for the advanced degree exception. Only those petitioners with selected registrations for FY 2024 are eligible to file H-1B cap-subject petitions. The initial filing period for those with selected registrations for FY 2024 was from April 1, 2023, through June 30, 2023.

USCIS recently determined that they will need to select additional registrations to reach the FY 2024 numerical allocations. Soon, USCIS will select additional registrations from previously submitted electronic registrations using a random selection process. USCIS will announce once they have completed this second selection process and have notified all prospective petitioners with selected registrations from the second round of selection that they are eligible to file an H-1B cap-subject petition for the beneficiary named in the applicable selected registration.

Those with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which will include details of when and where to file.
