USCIS has announced that they will conduct a second round of random selections from previously submitted FY 2024 H-1B registrations. USCIS will send an additional announcement once the second selection have been completed.
Individuals who are selected in this second round will be able to view this update in their myUSCIS accounts. All foreign nationals with a previously not selected FY H-1B Cap registration are strongly encouraged to create a “myUSCIS” account if they have not already done so.
This second round of random selections follows the result of fraud investigations into dozens of companies alleged to have worked together to submit registrations for the same foreign national in an effort to increase the odds of securing an H-1B selection for that potential employee. This has resulted in the government’s identification of registrations in violation of registration rules, making room under the cap for this second round of selections.
Employers will have 90 days from the date of selection notification to submit their petitions for foreign nationals selected in this second round.
