FY2023 H-1B CAP APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN REACHED

Aug 22, 2022 | Featured, H-1B, H-4 EAD, Immigration, News Clips, NIV, Nonimmigrant

USCIS has apparently received a sufficient number of petitions needed to reach the statutory 65,000 H-1B visa regular cap and the 20,000 H-1B visa U.S. advanced degree exemption for fiscal year (FY) 2023. We anticipate an agency announcement shortly.

Over the past several days, we have received non-selection notifications from USCIS.  It seems reasonable to assume that USCIS can only send a non-selection notice to a properly submitted H-1B registration once they have determined enough cases have been selected to reach the cap.  

USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions that are otherwise exempt from the cap.  Should you have any questions, please contact us at Younossi Law, PC for further questions.
