Embarking on the H1B visa journey signifies a pivotal moment for skilled foreign workers and their potential employers. The H1B Lottery, a key initiation administered by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), is the gateway to securing coveted H1B cap-subject visas. These visas offer the prospect of employment in the United States, attracting individuals with specialized skills and expertise. The anticipation builds as the H1B Registration (H1B Lottery) opens its doors on March 6, 2024, at 12 pm, providing aspiring candidates a chance to secure a spot in the annual visa allocation.

Crucial Milestones in the H1B Lottery Journey:

  • March 22, 2024: Last Day to Register
  • March 31, 2024: USCIS Notification of Lottery Winners
  • April 1, 2024, to June 30, 2024: H1B Petition Submission Period
  • October 1, 2024: Authorized Work Commencement for H1B Visa Holders

The urgency is apparent, with March 22, 2024, serving as the final day to register in the H1B lottery. Following this, USCIS will announce the lottery winners by March 31, 2024. The subsequent window, from April 1, 2024, to June 30, 2024, becomes a critical period for selected candidates to submit their H1B petitions, paving the way for potential employment opportunities in the U.S. Starting October 1, 2024, successful H1B visa holders can commence authorized work with their employers.
