The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that it has completed a successful pilot testing phase and is implementing the registration process in the next H-1B visa lottery.

The USCIS in a note said that employers seeking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions for the fiscal year 2021 cap, including those eligible for the advanced degree exemption, must first electronically register and pay the associated $10 H-1B registration fee.

The electronic registration process will dramatically streamline processing by reducing paperwork and data exchange, and will provide an overall cost savings to petitioning employers, the US agency said.
