U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently published fiscal year (FY) 2023 H-1B cap registration statistics, confirming that more than 48,000 prospective petitioners submitted 483,927 registrations—an approximate 57 percent increase over the number of registrations submitted in the FY 2022 filing season. USCIS selected 127,600 FY 2023 registrations in the initial lottery, representing roughly 26 percent of the total registrations. About 31 percent of all eligible registrations requested consideration under the advanced degree exemption.
USCIS will conduct additional selections for the FY 2023 H-1B cap after June 30, 2022, if there is low filing volume again this year.
