H-1B CAP CASE NEWS

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today announced a notice of proposed rule-making that will require employers seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions to pay a $10 fee for each electronic registration they submit to USCIS. This is the new method to handle H-1B cap cases beginning in FY2021.  If the case is selected in the lottery based on this registration system, the employer will then file the H-1B petition application in its entirety with USCIS.  More information from DHS will be forthcoming.
