USCIS Reaches H-1B Cap for Fiscal Year 2023
Pasricha & Patel
USCIS has announced that it has received sufficient H-1B petitions needed to reach the congressionally mandated 65,000 H-1B visa regular cap and the 20,000 H-1B visa U.S. master’s cap for the upcoming fiscal year 2023.
USCIS also confirmed that it has completed sending non-selection notifications to registrants’ online accounts. Now, the status for registrations that were properly submitted for the FY 2023 H-1B cap selection process, but which were not selected, is formally shown as: “Not Selected: Not Selected – not eligible to file an H-1B cap petition based on this registration”).
While this concludes the H-1B quota process for FY2023, the expectation is that come next March 2023, there will be another opportunity for H-1B employers to complete and send H-1B registrations for H-1B quota candidates at that time to try and fall under the H-1B quota FY2024.
For those H-1B registrations that were not selected, we do advise the employers to contact our office so we can discuss your particular cases and we can advise on your potential immigrant related -options for the non-selected candidates.
Should any readers have any questions about the H-1B filing process, we also encourage you to contact our office so we can discuss your specific case(s) in more detail.
