Initial Registration Period for the H-1B Cap for FY 2024

On March 1 at noon Eastern, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services began the registration period for the fiscal year 2024 H-1B cap, which will last until noon Eastern on March 17, 2023. The online H-1B registration system is available for potential petitioners and representatives to complete and submit their registrations.

For every application made concerning the FY 2024 H-1B cap, a confirmation number is allocated. This number is employed solely to monitor registrations; it is not possible to use this number to check your case status in Case Status Online.

Individuals who are preparing to submit an H-1B petition or their agents are required to use a myUSCIS online account to register each prospective recipient and pay the corresponding $10 fee for each one registered. Registrants (U.S. employers and representatives) who enter their own registrations may create an account starting at 12 pm Eastern on Feb. 21.

At any point, representatives may add new clients to their accounts; however, both the representative and the registrant must wait until March 1 to input beneficiary information and complete the registration, along with the applicable $10 fee. It is possible for petitioners or their representatives to submit multiple registrations for various beneficiaries during one online session. Through the account, users will be able to prepare, revise, and save incomplete registrations before making the final payment and submission of each registration.

By March 17, if there are sufficient registrations, the USCIS will draw them randomly and convey selection notifications to the users’ myUSCIS online accounts. Nevertheless, if the number of registrations is not adequate, all registrations that were sent in the initial registration period will be chosen. The USCIS plans to inform the account holders by March 31.

For the fiscal year 2024, the H-1B cap season, the U.S. Department of Treasury has decided to temporarily raise the daily credit card transaction ceiling from $24,999.99 to $39,999.99. This was due to the high volume of prior H-1B registration requests that exceeded the regular limit. More details will be released prior to the commencement of the H-1B registration period.

A petition for an H-1B beneficiary, including the advanced degree exemption, can only be filed by the petitioner whose registration was chosen during the H-1B registration procedure for the person named in the petition.
