USCIS has confirmed the dates for employers to begin the registration and application process for H-1B cap visas. For fiscal year 2022, the initial registration period will open on 9th March and continue until 25th March. This will be the second year of the implementation of the e-registration process. Employers would be expected to provide basic information, including particulars of the proposed worker for whom the H-1B visa is requested. Each registration will be supplied with a confirmation number.
If the no. of registrations exceeds the 85,000 H1B limit, USCIS will use a computerized lottery method to select the registrations for which the employers may file an H-1B cap application. Selection notices will be issued by the end of March. .USCIS will not initiate a salary-based selection system during this cap season
