Welcome to The Deng Law Firm's news and alerts section, where you can stay informed about the latest updates regarding immigration and visas. In this article, we discuss the recent development of USCIS selecting additional registrations for the FY 2021 H-1B cap.
USCIS Selection Process
The FY 2021 H-1B cap registration period opened on March 1, 2020, and closed on March 20, 2020. USCIS received a significant number of registrations during this period. The H-1B visa program allows employers to hire non-immigrant workers in specialty occupations. It is a highly popular visa category for skilled foreign workers.
Updates on Selections
In the recent announcement, USCIS informed that they conducted a lottery to select additional registrations to reach the H-1B cap of 85,000 visas. This process involved selecting from the pool of registrations that were not initially chosen in the first round of lottery selections.
Benefits for Employers and Applicants
This development is crucial for both employers and applicants. Employers who have had their registrations selected can proceed with filing H-1B petitions for their chosen employees. For applicants, having their registration selected increases their chances of obtaining an H-1B visa, which can lead to significant professional opportunities in the United States.
