U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on July 31, 2023, that it had completed its second round of random selection from previously submitted registrations for the FY 2024 H-1B Cap. In its announcement, USCIS stated that it selected a sufficient number of registrations projected as needed to reach the cap. Please note that any unselected beneficiary registrations will not reflect a status of “Not Selected” in the USCIS registration system until the conclusion of the fiscal year on September 30, 2024.

For selected registrations from the second round, H-1B cap-subject petitions for FY 2024 may be filed with USCIS during a 90-day window from August 2, 2023, through October 31, 2023.

USCIS has notified all prospective petitioners with selected registrations that they are eligible to file an H-1B cap-subject petition for the beneficiary named in the selected registration.

McCown & Evans will continue to follow updates on the H-1B cap process and will be working with clients to file H-1B petitions for selected registrants during the designated filing window.
