Earlier this month, USCIS proposed increasing the H-1B registration fee from $10 to $215, but those fee increases have not yet gone into effect so the registration fee for this calendar year remains at $10.

USCIS will randomly select registrations and send selection notifications via users’ myUSCIS online accounts.
