A federal US agency announced it has completed the process to implement the H-1B electronic registration process for the 2021 cap season. As a result of this, companies applying for H-1B visas for foreign workers for the fiscal year 2021 would have to register online and pay a processing fee of USD10.
The US Citizenship and ImmigrationServices would start accepting the H-1B petitions from april 1, 2020 for the next fiscal year. 'The electronic registration process will dramatically streamline processing by reducing paperwork and data exchange, and will provide an overall cost savings to petitioning employers," the USCIS said Friday.
Under this new process, employers seeking H-1B workers subject to the cap, or their authorized representatives, will complete a registration process that requires only basic information about their company and each requested worker. USCIS will post step-by-step instructions informing registrants how to complete the registration process on its website along with key dates and timelines as the initial registration period nears.
