Time is Running Out
to Prepare Registrations
for New H-1B Work Visas for 2022
• The H-1B work visa is the most commonly used work visa for newly hired professionals (Bachelor's degree and above).
• Only 85,000 new cap-subject H-1B work visas are available for all of 2022.
In general, H-1B eligibility requirements include a Bachelor's degree or higher (or equivalent education and/or experience), and a qualifying U.S. job offer from a sponsoring employer. Interested employers should start now preparing new H-1B 2022 Lottery Registration Applications for foreign workers, including computer/IT professionals, engineers, doctors, scientists, researchers, professors, teachers, accountants, architects, managers and many other professionals. It takes time to build a well-documented H-1B case for filing. We recommend starting preparation of the Lottery Registration Application well in advance to meet the registration deadline and to avoid disappointment.
After the 2022 H-1B quota is reached, there will be no new cap-subject H-1B work sponsorships available until October 1, 2023. If you have questions about the H-1B visa category or wish to obtain assistance with applying for any new H-1B work visas, please call us no later than Monday, February 28, 2022 at 612.321.0082.
