USA May Not Hold Second H-1B Visa Lottery For FY23

The US may not hold a second lottery for H-1B visas for the fiscal year 2023. From TOI report, immigration lawyers have reported issuing H-1B cap ‘non-selection’ notices – an expression that no second lottery will be held.

There may not be a second H-1B lottery this year. USCIS has issued several ‘non-selection’ notices electronically, which is a measure taken only if there will be no more lottery,” said Rajeev Khanna,’s managing counsel.

No formal announcement has been made by USCIS yet.

Last year, the US Immigration Agency performed 3 visa lotteries to meet the required cap of 65,000 regular visas and 20,000 under the master cap.

USCIS observes an October to September year, and applicants picked for FY2023 will be suitable to begin work in October 2023.

Over the past few years, Indian businesses have been decreasing the ratio of workers working on H-1B visas, even as US tech firms are growing the number of people obtained into the country on these visas. Huh. An usually cited reason is the paucity of highly skilled technical talent in the country. During the pandemic, the unemployment rate for technology roles has been low, meaning to the high demand that exists in the sector.
