FY2022 H-1B Visa Lottery Electronic Registration Begins March 9th
The lottery for the 2022 fiscal year H-1B electronic lottery registration begins on March 9, 2021 and closes on March 25, 2021. During this window, employers pay $10 to register their company and the employee they want to sponsor for an H-1B. Employers can register as many employees as they wish, though no employee can be registered twice with the same company. The lottery will take place between March 26th and March 30th, with USCIS likely announcing those who were selected (and not selected) on April 1, 2020. Assuming the same procedure this year, those were are selected in this year's lottery will have until June 30, 2021 to submit their H-1B petitions to USCIS. Last year, USCIS had a surplus of available visas and conducted a second lottery in the fall of 2020.
