U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released several updates related to the fiscal year (FY) 2023 H-1B cap season:

  • USCIS has received enough electronic registrations during the initial registration period to reach the FY 2023 H-1B numerical allocations (H-1B cap), including the advanced degree exemption (master’s cap). Registrants accounts will now reflect one of the following statuses for each registration: submitted, selected, denied, or invalidated-failed payment.

FY 2023 H-1B cap petitions may be filed with USCIS starting April 1, 2022, including those petitions eligible for the advanced degree exemption, if based on a valid, selected registration.
