The Immigration Service (“USCIS”) has announced the H-1B Registration Process Timeline for 2021 as follows:
March 9: H-1B registration period opens at noon ET.
March 25: H-1B registration period closes at noon ET.
March 31: Date by which USCIS intends to notify selected registrants.
April 1: The earliest date that FY 2022 H-1B cap-subject petitions may be filed.
Applicants that are not selected will not be notified until after USCIS has determined that they have reached the H-1B cap for that fiscal year. Last year, there was essentially a second lottery when the first round did not result in sufficient numbers being selected.
In past years, our office has successfully filed H-1B applications in the following fields:
Architect, Architectural Designer, Choreographer, Editor/Writer, Arts Administrator, Professor, Staff Scientist, Technical Associate, Food Technologist, Design Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Chemical Engineer, Industrial Engineer, Cost Engineer, Legal Assistant, Paralegal, Attorney, Creative Director, Graphic Designer, Industrial/Product Designer, Project Manager, Business Development Associate, Director, Business Development, Market Research Analyst, Chief Marketing Officer, Communications Specialist, Financial Research Associate, Financial Product Advisor, Production Associate, Budget Analyst, Director of Web Services, Information Technology Analyst
