I am on H-4 and do not have an EAD. My registration was selected in the lottery. Is it possible for the employer to request a start date earlier than October 1, 2023?


No. Ordinarily, the earliest start date that can be requested for an H1B cap case is October 1st, which is the first day of the new fiscal year. (30.Mar.2023)
