On March 21, 2024, USCIS announced that they would be extending the registration period for the 2024 (fiscal year 2025) H-1B cap registration.

The initial registration opened at noon eastern on March 6, 2024 and was scheduled to run through noon eastern on March 22, 2024. The registration period will now run through noon eastern on March 25, 2024. The extension of the registration period is due to a temporary USCIS outage that was experienced by some registrants.

The registration process during this extended period will remain the same and USCIS still intends to notify registrants that they are selected by March 31, 2024.
