On September 3, 2019, USCIS announced a notice of proposed rulemaking that would require US Employers seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions to pay a $10 fee for each electronic registration they submit to USCIS for the H-1B cap selection process. This is just a proposal, and USCIS will accept comments from stakeholders through October 4, 2019. Until the comment period concludes and USCIS releases a final rule, no changes have been made. Additionally, USCIS has not yet announced whether it intends to implement the H-1B registration system for the upcoming H-1B cap filing season.
Please contact SPS Immigration if you have any questions regarding how this proposed rule may impact your business.
