The new H-1B cap registration final rule (86 FR 1676) modifying the H-1B cap selection process, amending current lottery procedures, and prioritizing prevailing wage takes effect on March 8, 2021. Our firm expects this to be the start date of the 2022 H-1B cap registration period, even if Biden withdraws the final rule.

DOS Releases Visa Bulletin for March 2017

March 2017 Visa Bulletin

The Department Of State (DOS) controls immigrant visa availability. The DOS March 2017 Visa Bulletin includes “Application Final Action Dates” and “Dates for Filing Applications” for the family- and employment-based categories. There is forward movement in the final action date for the employment-based, third preference category for China, which advanced by almost six months to March 15, 2014, and the final action date for the employment-based, second preference category for India advanced by six weeks, to June 1, 2008. USCIS is expected to publish in March whether it will accept adjustment of status applications for family- or employment-based petitions based on filing dates, rather than final action dates, for March 2017.
