Employer H1-B Visas Update

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services today announced a final rule that will require a $10 non-refundable fee for each Employer submitted H-1B registration, once it implements the electronic registration system. The registration  and fee are part of an agency effort to more efficiently process H-1B visa application.

The H-1B program allows a U.S. employer to temporarily employ foreign workers in occupations that require the application of a body of highly specialized knowledge and a bachelor’s degree or higher in the specific specialty.

USCIS is slated to implement the registration process for the fiscal year 2021 H-1B cap selection process, pending completed testing of the system. The agency will announce the implementation timeframe and registration period in the Federal Register once a formal decision has been made. 

For assistance on these employment-immigration issues, an employer should consult an experienced attorney that handles employment-based visas.  For assistance on these issues, please contact us.
