USCIS Extends H-1B Cap Registration Period till Mar 25


WASHINGTON, DC- For the fiscal year 2025, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has extended the initial registration period for the fiscal year (FY) 2025 H-1B cap. The extension was announced due to technical glitches in the registration system. The agency made the announcement on Thursday. It was announced that the registration period, initially set to close on March 22, 2024, will now run until March 25, 2024.

The registration period opened on March 6, 2024 for the FY 2025 H-1B cap. The opening saw a glitch in the system, causing concern among immigration attorneys as the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) received reports regarding missing signatures on the PDF version of Form G-28, a document required for H-1B cap registrations when submitted by attorneys.

The system also saw some other glitches such as the inability to pay the registration fee, frequent freezing of the system, and different types of error messages.
