BREAKING NEWS: USCIS Runs THIRD Lottery for FY 2022 H-1B Cap Season!
USCIS has released a notice that they recently determined that additional registration selections were needed to reach the FY 2022 H-1B cap, including the advanced degree exemption. Today, USCIS selected from previously submitted electronic registrations using a random selection process.
If you have any registrations that were selected during this third lottery, you can begin filing your H-1B petitions on November 22, 2021 and the filing period will be closed on February 23, 2022. Individuals with selected registrations will have their myUSCIS accounts updated to include a selection notice, which includes details about when and where to file.
As always, USCIS would like to remind Petitioners that an H-1B cap-subject petition must be properly filed at the correct service center and within the filing period indicated on the relevant registration selection notice. Online filing is not available for H-1B petitions. Petitioners filing H-1B petitions must do so by paper and must include a printed copy of the applicable registration selection notice with the FY 2022 H-1B cap-subject petition.
If you have any new H-1B registration selections, please contact your attorney to begin the process of filing the case.
