USCIS ANNOUNCES IMPLEMENTATION OF H1-B ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION FOR FY 2021 CAP SEASON

January 14, 2020

 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it is implementing an electronic registration process for the next H-1B lottery. Employers seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions for the fiscal year 2021 cap must first electronically register and pay the associated $10 H-1B registration fee.

 

USCIS will open an initial registration period from March 1 through March 20, 2020.

Under the new process, USCIS said, employers seeking H-1B workers subject to the cap, or their authorized representatives, will complete a registration process that requires only basic information about their company and each requested worker. After the initial registration period, the H-1B random selection process, if needed, will be run on those electronic registrations. Only those with selected registrations will be eligible to file H-1B cap-subject petitions. USCIS said it will post step-by-step instructions on its website along with key dates and timelines as the initial registration period nears.
