The USCIS has confirmed that it will use an electronic pre-registration system for 2020 (Fiscal Year 2021). Under this program, H-1B petitioners and beneficiaries must be registered between March 1-20, 2020. Accordingly, all MU clients should begin to identify the beneficiaries that they would like to sponsor for the 2020 H-1B cap season.

The USCIS has not yet announced the specific data that will be required for registration, although they have assured the public that the required information will be “basic.” There will be a nominal $10 fee for each registration. After the New Year, MU will hold a webinar teleconference to outline the process for our clients.
