NewsFlash! USCIS Completed Selections for Second H1B Lottery

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it has selected enough registrations to meet the fiscal year 2024 (FY24) H1B cap.

As with the first lottery, those with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice. The online accounts should now show one of the following for each registration:

  • Submitted – A registration status may continue to show “Submitted” after the initial selection process has been completed. “Submitted” registrations will remain in consideration for selection until the end of the fiscal year.
  • Selected – Selected to file a FY24 cap-subject H1B petition.
  • Denied – A duplicate registration was submitted by the same registrant for the same beneficiary. If denied as a duplicate registration, all registrations submitted for this beneficiary for the fiscal year are invalid.
  • Invalidated-Failed Payment – A payment method was declined and not reconciled.

As with the first lottery, H1B petitioners will have 90 days to file a corresponding H1B petition, with a filing window from August 02, 2023, through October 31, 2023.
