H-1B Work Visas for 2021: USCIS Launches Full Application Process
On April 1, Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the start of the H-1B work visa application process for fiscal year 2021. They can be submitted by those whose preliminary applications were approved as a result of the lottery (we wrote about how to check the results of the lottery here) This was reported on the official website. USCIS.
An employer has the right to file an H-1B petition for fiscal year 2021 only if he previously registered his potential employee online, and USCIS selected this application through random selection (lottery).
The H-1B electronic visa registration process, which was first launched this year, was highly praised by users. Almost 275 applications were submitted during the initial registration period. Approximately 000% of all registrations concerned potential employees with advanced degrees. More than 46 accounts were created, and almost 40% of registered applications related to potential employees from India (000%) and China (81%).
Before launching the electronic registration system, USCIS actively consulted with people on how to use the new system.
“The new H-1B electronic visa registration system has been successful. This streamlined process has reduced the amount of paper and data exchanged between USCIS and employers, said Joseph Edlow, USCIS Deputy Director. - Positive feedback received from users, a small number of technical problems that arose during the registration period, and the ability to immediately answer user questions were the result of integrated efforts for over a year. The new registration system is one of many ways USCIS is improving the H-1B visa program. ”
Each H-1B visa application must be submitted by the deadline specified in the corresponding notice of pre-registration of online pre-registration for this application. The deadline for submitting a full H-1B visa application is at least 90 days. Online submission of full H-1B visa applications is not available, therefore employers must send all in paper form. They should also attach to the package of documents a copy of the corresponding notice about the choice of registration within the online lottery.
The registrations selected by the lottery do not guarantee a visa. The choice in the registration process does not exempt the applicant from the need to present evidence of his right to participate in this program.
