U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today in a stakeholder message that H-1B processing will be delayed for fiscal year 2021 cap season because of COVID-19-related health protocols. A 90-day filing period began April 1.
Key dates and information:
BAL Analysis: Employers should plan for delays in H-1B cap receipt notices of at least several weeks, and should prioritize time-sensitive filings when meeting the filing deadline of June 30. USCIS suspended premium processing until further notice earlier this year and the agency indicated today that it is not planning to extend the 90-day filing window. H-1B cap-subject petitions must be filed during the filing window indicated in the registration selection notice.
