USCIS has Completed the 2023 H-1B Lottery

USCIS has met the cap for H-1B visa petitions for the fiscal year 2023. Notifications were sent to registrants’ online accounts. If your case was not selected, the account will read, “Not selected: Not selected- not eligible to file an H-1B cap petition based on this registration.”

Petitions that are exempt from the cap will continue to be accepted and processed. Those H-1B workers counted previously that still have their cap number, are exempt from the fiscal year 2023 cap. USCIS will continue to accept and process petitions filed to:

  • Extend the amount of time a current H-1B worker may remain in the United States;
  • Change the terms of employment for current H-1B workers;
  • Allow current H-1B workers to change employers; and
  • Allow current H-1B workers to work concurrently in additional H-1B positions.
