U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services published notices in the Federal Register today that indicate the agency is creating an H-1B Registration Tool and will revise Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, used to apply for the H-1B visa, to reflect the addition of the registration requirement.
BAL Analysis: The Federal Register notices indicate that USCIS is working to put in place the H-1B registration tool for next April’s H-1B cap season. USCIS is expected to finalize the registration tool following a comment period that ends Aug. 26. BAL is closely monitoring the issue and will provide updates as more information becomes available.
