The US government office for immigration services announced on Tuesday that it had received enough applications to meet the 65,000 H1-B visa threshold set by Congress for the fiscal year 2023.

A non-immigrant visa called the H-1B permits US businesses to hire foreign nationals for specialized jobs that need theoretical or technical competence.

It is essential to the hiring of thousands of workers each year from nations like China and India by technology businesses.

The H-1B visa program is the most popular choice for professionals from outside the country, especially Indians.

According to a statement from US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), “We have received a sufficient number of petitions needed to reach the Congressionally mandated 65,000 H-1B visa regular cap and the 20,000 H-1B visa advanced degree exemption, known as the master’s cap, for the fiscal year 2023.”

Notifications of non-selection have been delivered to registrants’ online accounts by USCIS.

Not Chosen: It added that those who were not eligible to file an H-1B cap petition based on this registration will now be displayed for registration. that They were correctly submitted for the FY 2023 H-1B numerical allotment, it added.

The federal agency stated that it will continue to accept and handle requests that are otherwise exempt from the cap.

The FY 2023 H-1B cap does not apply to petitions submitted for current H-1B employees who have previously been counted against the ceiling and who still hold their cap number, according to the statement.

But USCIS will keep processing petitions submitted to prolong an H-1B worker’s stay in the US, alter their terms of employment, or enable them to work in other countries.
