USCIS Completes Initial H-1B Electronic Registration Selection Process and Extends Grace Period for New Form I-129

On March 30, 2021, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced it had completed the initial FY2022 H-1B Cap-Subject Registration selections. As of April 1, 2021, petitioners who were selected during the registration period will be able to file Form I-129 for H-1B Cap-Subject consideration.

Additionally, USCIS has extended a grace period for the new version of Form I-129 (03/10/21 edition). Starting July 1, 2021, USCIS will only accept the 03/10/21 edition of Form I-129. Until then, stakeholders may continue to use the 09/30/20 and 01/27/20 editions. Please note that the original announcement would have required the 03/10/21 edition as of April 19, 2021.
