2024 H-1B Visa Cap Reached

As of December 13, 2023, the H-1B specialty occupation visa cap for the 2024 fiscal year has been maxed out. The threshold was 65,000 for the regular visa cap and an additional 20,000 for the H-1B visa advanced degree exemption. This year over 780,000 employers registered.

Non-recipients should have been notified in December and need to plan for alternative visa statuses, such as J-1 visa, E-3 visa, O-1 visa, and the TN visa.

The USCIS will continue to accept petitions regarding:

  • Change of employers
  • Change of terms of employment
  • Extensions of time
  • Extension of additional H-1B positions for current visa holders
