Navigating the New H-1B Registration Process for FY 2021 – Key Changes, Deadlines and More
Join us every other month for “Immigration Insights” – our global immigration webinar series designed to keep you up to date on hot topics in immigration law. Our first webinar in the series will provide a and discuss the changes coming to H-1B cap processing for fiscal year 2021.
In a December 2019 announcement, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) revealed that employers seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions for Fiscal Year 2021’s season – which will run from March 1 to March 20, 2020 – will be required to electronically register and pay a registration fee. The electronic registration system is intended to simplify the annual process, reduce paperwork and streamline the exchange of data. The switch to online electronic registration is not the only change – in working to streamline the process, USCIS has implemented numerous other changes to the H-1B cap lottery process of which employers need to be aware. As is the case with most new systems, employers and applicants have many questions and areas of concern.
In this complimentary webinar, immigration partner Jocelyn Campanaro will provide the basics of the new process, discuss the changes, and provide employers with the key information they need to know to ensure they are ready for March 1.
Topics to include:
- Registration period
- Setting up an online account
- Electronically submitting registrations
- H-1B registration selection and notification process
