U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said Friday that it would accept H-1B registrations until 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, March 20.

Key Points:

BAL Analysis: The extended deadline will provide more time to those affected by Thursday’s technical problem to complete registration. USCIS stressed that “paid and completed registrations were not affected” by the technical issue. Those who were able to complete registration do not need to take any action. BAL legal teams will ensure that all intended applicants are registered by the new deadline, and foreign nationals may check the status of their cases by logging into Cobalt. BAL will provide additional information as it becomes available.
