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.

NSC Premium Processing Email Notification Failure

The Nebraska Service Center’s (NSC) Premium Processing Unit confirmed a lack of email notifications was due to a technical glitch with its system. For several weeks, American Immigration Lawyer Association (AILA) members were not receiving any email notifications for petitions filed with the NSC Premium Processing Unit.

We have reported that we are receiving email notifications from the NSC, but without the beneficiary’s information and/or with additional digits added to the receipt number. The NSC stated it is aware of the problem and is working with its IT department to resolve it. The NSC also reported that due to the glitch, courtesy receipt notices were sent after cases had already been approved.

If you receive a hard copy of a receipt or approval notice (Form I-797) without the beneficiary’s information and/or with additional digits added to the receipt number. The NSC advises you to contact its Premium Processing Unit via the contact methods listed on the I-797 notice to request a corrected approval or receipt notice.
