This year, USCIS will be utilizing an electronic registration requirement for H-1B cap subject petitions. USCIS will be providing additional information and instructions regarding the registration requirement, which will be online and will require a $10 registration fee for each case. USCIS will open the registration period from March 1, 2020 through March 20, 2020. The random selection lottery process will be run after the registration period, assuming USCIS receives more registrations than slots available. If selected, a 90 day period of time will be given during which the H-1B petition must be filed.
If you anticipate needing to file an H-1B cap subject petition this year, please contact Susan Lane immediately for more information.
