Now is the Time to Identify Key Employees for H-1B Work Visa Sponsorship for 2021
• 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 2021.
• In 2020, more than 260,000 H-1 Lottery Registrations were submitted to USCIS
Interested employers should start now preparing new H-1B 2021 Lottery Registration Applications for foreign workers, including computer/IT professionals, engineers, doctors, scientists, researchers, professors, 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 2021 H-1B quota is reached, there will be no new cap-subject H-1B work sponsorships available until October 1, 2022. 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 email us or call us no later than February 28, 2021 at 612.321.0082.
