USCIS Reminder That Initial H-1B Registration Period Will Open at Noon Eastern on March 1

USCIS announced that the initial registration period for FY2021 H-1B cap will run from 12:00 pm (ET) on March 1 through 12:00 pm (ET) on March 20. During this period, prospective petitioners and representatives will be able to fill out prospective petitioner and beneficiary information and submit their registrations.

USCIS will assign a confirmation number to each registration submitted for the FY2021 H-1B cap. This number will be used solely to track registrations and cannot be used to track case status in Case Status Online.

If USCIS receives enough registrations by March 20, it will randomly select registrations and send selection notifications via users’ USCIS online accounts by March 31.
