USCIS final rule adding a requirement that petitioners seeking to file cap-subject H-1B petitions, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption, first electronically register with USCIS during a designated period. USCIS is suspending the registration requirement for the FY2020 cap season in order to complete testing of the new registration system. The rule also reverses the order by which USCIS selects H-1B registrations (or petitions, for FY2020 or any other year in which the registration requirement is suspended) by first selecting registrations submitted on behalf of all beneficiaries, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption. USCIS will then select from the remaining registrations a sufficient number projected as needed to reach the advanced degree exemption. This change to the order of the selection process will be implemented for the FY2020 cap season. The rule is effective 4/1/19. (84 FR 888, 1/31/19)
