2nd Round of H-1B Cap Lottery!

2nd Round of H-1B Cap Lottery!

Did you lose the 2023 H-1B via lottery? You may get a second chance!

USCIS has completed this second selection process, and those with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which includes details of when and where to file.

If you are selected in this second lottery round, it does not mean that you will automatically be granted an H-1B visa, as evidenced by this new availability. You must still submit a competent petition demonstrating to USCIS that you meet all of the qualifications required for an H-1B visa.

Specifically, you must demonstrate that:

  1. the position is a specialty occupation and
  2. the foreign national meets all the required criteria.

It is important to remember that in addition to meeting these qualifications, USCIS requires you to demonstrate such in your application. That is why it is important to have an experienced H-1B visa attorney to assist you.

If you have received a selection notice, if you are unsure if you received a notice, or if you would like to discuss your immigration options in general, contact the experienced immigration attorneys at the Scott Law Firm today!

Didn’t Receive a Selection Notice?

If you did not receive a selection notice, don’t worry! There may still be immigration options available to you. You may also be able to start preparing for H1B season for next year!
