United States | Reminder: H-1B Cap Petition Filing Period Closes June 30
Tuesday, June 18, 2024

Employers filing H-1B cap petitions for fiscal year 2025 are reminded that the filing period closes June 30.

Key Points:

  • Petitioners must file a petition for candidates who were selected in the H-1B lottery by June 30 in order for the petition to be considered.
  • Only petitioners with selected registrations may file H-1B cap-subject petitions for the beneficiary named in the selected registration notice.
  • U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services received 479,953 total registrations for this year’s H-1B lottery, a figure substantially lower than last year’s record-breaking 780,884. The agency attributed the decline to the undertaking of fraud investigations and implementation of the new beneficiary-centric selection process.
