New H-1B registration starts on March 1, 2020

The USCIS will implement the electronic registration process for the first time for the fiscal year 2021 (FY 2021) H-1B cap.

The employers (registrants), who are seeking authorization to employ H-1B workers subject to the cap, must first electronically register and pay $10 registration fee for each employee. The H-B registration process for FY 2021 will start on March 1, 2020 at noon ET and remain open until March 20, 2020 at noon ET.

The H-1B random selection process, if needed, will then be run on properly submitted electronic registrations. The USCIS intends to notify selected registrants by March 31, 2020. The selected registrants may start filing H-1B cap-subject petitions on April 1, 2020.
