Initial registration period for the FY 2022 H-1B cap will open on March 9 and run through March 25. During this period, prospective petitioners and representatives will be able to fill out petitioner and beneficiary information and submit their registrations. A confirmation number will be assigned to each registration submitted for the FY 2022 H-1B cap. On March 25 if USCIS receives enough registrations, USCIS will randomly select registrations and send selection notifications via users’ myUSCIS online accounts. On March 31 USCIS will notify account holders. An H-1B cap-subject petition may only be filed by a petitioner whose registration for that beneficiary was selected in the H-1B registration process.
