USCIS Publishes Final Rule changing H-1B Cap Application Process

As we had discussed in an earlier post, USCIS has published a rule seeking to dramatically change how the application process would work for initial, cap-subject H-1Bs. The two main changes involved the method of filing – where a simple online form would be completed by the employer to enter the lottery rather thAn the complete filing required to enter under the old system – and a change in the order of the lottery selection between the 20,00 US Master’s H-1Bs and the general 65,000 category.
