Each fiscal year, USCIS is authorized to issue 65,000 H-1B visas and an additional 20,000 H-1B advanced degree visas.
The registration process will now be open beginning March 1, 2022 until March 18, 2022 for FY2023. Registration requires only a $10 registration fee and minimal information. USCIS will then select H-1B cap registrations at random. USCIS aims to notify all selected registrants by March 31, 2022. All non-selected USCIS will then send selection notifications to individual “myUSCIS” online accounts. Registrations that are not selected will be held in reserve in case USCIS does not receive a corresponding H-1B petition for a selected registration. It is important to begin the Labor Condition Application (LCA) with the Department of Labor as soon as possible as to avoid any possible delays. USCIS will begin accepting applications for cap subject petitions on April 1, 2022 for employment beginning on or after October 1, 2022.
