USCIS Implements $10 Fee for H-1B Employer Registration

On November 7, 2019, USCIS announced a Final Rule that requires employers seeking to submit petitions to employ H-1B workers to pay a registration fee of $10.  The fee is non-refundable.  The Final Rule will become effective on December 9, 2019, and will be in place for the fiscal year 2021 H-1B cap selection process. Further details on its implementation and the implementation of the new electronic registration system will be forthcoming from USCIS at a later date.
