USCIS Reaches H-1B Visa Cap for Fiscal Year 2023

By: Angelita Chavez | August 23, 2022

By: Ishan Anand

USCIS has announced that they have obtained enough submissions to meet the congressionally mandated cap of 65,000 H-1B regular and 20,000 H-1B U.S advanced degree exemption visas for FY 2023. USCIS will not run a second cap lottery for FY 2023.

registrant status

Additionally, USCIS has finished notifying all registrants of their selection status. Petitioners who correctly submitted registrations for the FY 2023 cycle should log into their online accounts to view their current status. If the registration status states ‘Not Selected’, they are currently ineligible to file an H-1B cap petition.

cap exemptions

Current H-1B nonimmigrants in cap exempt categories, such as anyone who has been counted against the cap in an earlier fiscal year, may still submit extensions and other related H-1B petitions. USCIS is currently accepting and processing H-1B petitions for:

  • Extending a current petition
  • Adjusting the terms of employment on a current petition
  • Changing an employer for a current H-1B visa holder
  • Allowing a current H-1B visa holder to work in another H-1B position concurrently


For questions regarding the H-1B process or help amending or extending an H-1B petition contact your trusted Chugh, LLP immigration team.
