The USCIS has announced in a News Alert that it will select a second round of H-1B registrations in the Fiscal Year 2024 H-1B Cap lottery (FY 2024 refers to CAP registrations filed in March 2023).

While there are only 85,000 H-1B cap-subject visas available each year, a staggering 758,994 registrations were entered into the H-1B lottery for FY2024. MU previously released a blog post on this announcement here.

The second round of selections indicates that not enough H-1B filings were submitted between April 1, 2023 and June 30, 2023 to meet the 85,000 H-1B CAP.

USCIS noted in its News Alert that it will announce once the second-round selection process is completed. Those with selected second-round registrations will have their or their attorney’s myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which includes details of when and where to file.
