The initial registration period for the fiscal year 2024 H-1B cap will begin at noon Eastern time on March 1 and last until noon Eastern time on March 17, 2023, according to a statement released by USCIS on Jan 1, 2023. Potential petitioners and representatives can fill out and submit their registrations utilizing our online H-1B registration system during this time.
For the FY 2024 H-1B cap, USCIS will assign each registration a confirmation number. You cannot use this number to track the status of your case in Case Status Online; it is only used to track registrations.
Each beneficiary must be electronically registered for the selection process using a myUSCIS account, and prospective H-1B cap-subject petitioners or their representatives must pay the $10 H-1B registration fee for each registration made on behalf of each beneficiary. Prospective petitioners who submit their own registrations will utilize a "registrant" account. New accounts can be made by registrants starting on February 21 at noon Eastern.
According to the USCIS announcement, registrants and representatives must wait until March 1 to enter beneficiary information and submit the registration with the $10 fee. Representatives may add clients to their accounts at any time. In a single online session, prospective petitioners or their representatives would be able to register multiple beneficiaries. Prior to making the final payment and submitting each registration, they will be able to create, update, and store draft registrations through the account.
If sufficient registrations are received by March 17, USCIS will randomly choose registrations and notify people via their myUSCIS online accounts of their selection. All registrations that were correctly submitted during the initial registration period will be chosen if we do not get enough registrations. Account holders will be informed by March 31.
The daily credit card transaction cap has been temporarily raised for the FY 2024 H-1B cap season by the U.S. Department of Treasury from $24,999.99 to $39,999.99 per day. The number of prior H-1B registrations exceeded the daily credit card limit, prompting this temporary increase. Before the initial H-1B registration period begins, more details will be given.
Only a petitioner whose registration for the beneficiary identified in the H-1B petition was chosen during the H-1B registration process may submit an H-1B cap-subject petition, including a petition for a beneficiary who is qualified for the advanced degree exemption.
