FY 2022 H-1B Cap Registration Begins March 8, 2021

The FY 2022 H-1B Cap Registration period will begin March 8, 2021, and end March 26, 2021.

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.

While we are temporarily required to file H1B Extensions of Stay (EOS) Petitions for an H-1B worker to continue the same employment with the same employer at Nebraska Service Center to balance (NSC) USCIS workload. Now, temporarily, USCIS is transferring H-1B EOS I-129 petitions and accompanying H4 I-539 EOS and I-765 EAD from the NSC to the California Service Center (CSC) where we might have originally filed but for the direct to file at NSC to balance the workload.
