The Department of Homeland Security Proposes a Minimal Fee of $10 for the
Registration of H-1B Cap Subject Petitions
The USCIS is Implementing New Rules for Processing FY2021 H-1B Cap Petitions
Through its rules under 8 CFR Part 214, the USCIS implemented new plans
for processing H-1B Cap Petitions starting with FY 2021. As stated in
our earlier client alert, in H-1B Cap seasons beginning with FY2021, petitioners
will be required to pre-register their beneficiaries in an online system
All registered petition will then be put through the selection process
/ lottery prior to the actual filing of the H-1B petitions. Only the beneficiaries
who are selected from the registered pool will be eligible to have the
petitioners file the H-1B petitions on their behalf.
The USCIS though new rules is now proposing to implement a fee of $10
per beneficiary for registration in the new electronic system. This fee
will be in addition to the regular filing fees.
