U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that

the initial registration period for FY 2022 H-1B cap-subject

petitions opens at noon ET on March 9, 2021, and runs through noon

ET on March 25, 2021. Representatives and registrants must wait

until March 9 to create and submit H-1B registrations.

USCIS explained that prospective petitioners (registrants) must

use a “registrant” account within myUSCIS to submit their

registrations. Registrants will not be able to add more

information after they select “I am an H-1B registrant”

account type until the initial registration period opens.

Petitioners submitting their own registrations will enter their

company information as part of their first H-1B registration.

Petitioners working with a representative will review company

information that the representative enters before submitting the

registration for each prospective beneficiary.

Representatives can create an account at any time by using the

same kind of account already available to representatives.

Representatives who already have a representative account may use

that account; they do not need to create a new account, USCIS


USCIS has released instructions and a video on how to set up an

account and register (link below).
