Companies filing H-1B cap petitions for fiscal year 2021 are reminded that the 90-day filing period closes at the end of June.
Background: The agency debuted the H-1B electronic registration process this year, requiring all petitioners to submit a registration for each potential H-1B cap beneficiary. More than 275,000 registrations were submitted, and USCIS completed the selection process at the end of March. The agency announced last week that it plans to resume premium processing for cap-subject H-1B petitions June 22.
BAL Analysis: Companies should work with their BAL professional to ensure that their H-1B cap petitions are filed before the end of the month and identify cases for which premium processing will be requested when the expedited service resumes. BAL clients may log in to BAL’s H-1B Electronic Registration Resource Center for updates on H-1B cap season.
