H-1B Cap Reached for Fiscal Year 2022

March 31, 2021

USCIS announced on March 30, 2021 that they have received enough electronic registrations during the initial registration period to reach the Fiscal Year 2022 H-1B numerical allocations. USCIS randomly selected from among the properly submitted registrations to reach the cap and have notified all selected petitioners via the online account used for registration. Petitioners’ online accounts will show one of four status: submitted, selected, denied, or invalidated—failed payment.

Only those with a selected status for FY 2022 may begin submitting their H-1B petitions on April 1, 2021. The period for filing will remain open for 90 days. If a second selection process is conducted after this initial period of submissions (because the cap has not been reached), those with a submitted status will continue to be eligible for random selection.

Please contact us with any questions about the H-1B Cap-Subject submission process.
