Immigration Nerds Talk About the Upcoming H-1B Cap Season

On Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced it would not be applying the H-1B Selection final rule introduced on January 7 by the Trump Administration to the upcoming H-1B registration period, which begins in March.

The Trump administration’s rule, set to have gone into effect on March 9, would have changed the current random lottery H-1B selection process to prioritize high wage-earning and more experienced applicants.

In this week’s Immigration Nerds episode, we talk to EIG Managing Director and attorney Hiba M. Anver about the upcoming H-1B selection process, what to expect, and how companies and petitioners can prepare.
