USCIS has announced that the initial registration period for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 H-1B cap will open at noon EST on March 9, 2021 and run through noon EST on March 25, 2021.

The prospective petitioners and their representatives will be able to fill out the petitioner and beneficiary information and submit the online registrations during this period. The fee per registration will be $10.

If the number of registrations exceeds the H-1B quota of 85,000, USCIS will use a random computerized lottery to select the registrations for which an H-1B cap petition may be filed. USCIS will send selection notifications via the users’ online USCIS accounts by March 31, 2021.

USCIS will not implement a wage-based selection system during this cap season.
