USCIS announced yesterday that it will conduct a second lottery to select additional H-1B cap registrations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024.
In March 2023, USCIS conducted an initial random selection on properly submitted electronic H-1B cap registrations for the FY2 2024 H-1B cap. 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 it would need to select additional registrations to reach the FY 2024 numerical allocations. Using a random selection process, USCIS will soon select additional registrations from previously submitted electronic registrations. Those with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which includes details of when and where to file.
