Practice Alert: USCIS SCOPS Confirms No Procedural Changes for H-1B FY2019 Cap Season

AILA Doc. No. 18012505 | Dated January 25, 2018

USCIS Service Center Operations Directorate (SCOPS) confirmed to AILA's SCOPS Liaison Committee that SCOPS is not anticipating any procedural changes for the FY2019 H-1B cap season.

USCIS intends to follow the same procedures that were used for the FY2018 H-1B season, which presumably would not include a pre-registration system.

In addition, USCIS does not anticipate that premium processing will be suspended for non-cap H-1B petitions, though there may be a short suspension of premium processing for H-1B cap-subject petitions.
