Updates about H1B Visa Lottery 2024
Due to the high demand for H1B visas, the H1B Visa Lottery will likely happen again in March 2023 for H1B 2024. This allows the USCIS to select applicants to ensure they meet the annual quota limit randomly.
There are less than 100 days until the opening of the H1B Visa Lottery portal in 2024. Therefore, it is essential to locate an employer as soon as possible that will allow you to register your name on the electronic H1B Visa Lottery portal.
If you’re looking to move to the U.S., this could be your current employer, or you could find a new employer to help you if you want to stay in the U.S.
H1B Visa Lottery 2024:
The H1B 2024 Visa Lottery electronic portal is expected to open in March 2023. This follows the precedent of opening in March, as in previous years. Here are some dates that could be expected if the portal opens on March 1, 2023.
- March 1 – 17: The H1B Visa 2024 registration period through an employer
- March 27 – 31: H1B Visa Lottery Result likely to be declared
- April 1: The first date to accept applications for the lottery winners
- April 1 – June 30: Window for applicants selected by the lottery to send an application for an H1B petition (I-129)
These dates are likely to be announced at the end of January 2023. To ensure you get the submission deadline, ensure you set reminders in your calendar for employers once you have found them. Your employer must submit your name and passport number and pay a $10 non-refundable fee.
The H1B Lottery will select 85,000 applicants for FY 2024. This includes 65,000 standard applicants and 20,000 extra for advanced degree holders (Master’s degrees only).
Experts in immigration estimate that there will be more than half a million H1B Visa Lottery registrations in FY 2024. As H1B visa demand continues to rise, FY 2024’s registrations will likely surpass all records.
