H-1B FILING PORTAL SET TO OPEN UP – START YOUR ENGINES
H1-B Visas have reached their cap limit and are no longer being processed. However, fiscal year 2022 H-1b visas will now be accepted through the US CIS’ new internet portal system of electronic registration. This registration period will be open ONLY from March 9 EST through March 25 noon EST. This is your only opportunity to apply for H-1b visas. Please note that the Fiscal year of 2022 actually STARTS OCTOBER 1, 2021. So, employment on these 2022 H-1b visas would begin on that date.
Even though President Biden has expanded the number of visas available as best as possible, it is still expected that more applicants will apply than there exist available visa slots. Hence, some people will miss out and now be selected for this round of visas. It is presumed that as long as your application is submitted on or before the March 25, 2021 deadline that your application will have the same chance of being randomly selected for inclusion in the visa processing as all other applications received during this filing window.
