Fiscal Year 2023 H-1B Cap Reached

By September 4, 2022September 7th, 2022No Comments

USCIS has recently announced that it has received enough H-1B Cap positions to fill the 85,000 slots available for the fiscal year 2023. With this cap being reached, foreign workers will have the ability to be employed by employers in the United States with the H-1B temporary non-immigrant visa. As the quota has been reached, there will not be a second cap lottery for H-1B employment. To elaborate, employers submitted an adequate number of H-1B petitions that the FY 2023 cap of thousands of visas has been met. As the petitions that have been submitted and approved have sufficiently met the quota, there will not be any more additional lotteries. USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are exempt from the cap despite the quota being met. If one’s application is said to be “Not selected”, they are not eligible for a petition based on this type of visa registration.
