USCIS has announced that its new electronic registration has completed pilot testing and will be used for the upcoming 2021 H-1B Cap Season.
In this new process, from March 1 – March 20, 2020, employers or their representatives must first register with basic information about the company and the worker for each worker, as well as pay a $10 registration fee. If registrations exceed the cap limit, then USCIS will run an H-1B random selection process. Only the randomly selected registrations will be allowed to file H-1B petitions.
USCIS hopes to streamline the H-1B cap selection process with this electronic registration system.
