My registration was not selected in the lottery. Is it possible the USCIS will select additional registrations later on?


Last year, which was the first time the H1B registration system was used, a second round of registrations were selected in August. However, this was likely the result of the sudden and massive hit to the economy created by the pandemic. (i.e., Job offers made in early March 2020, during the registration period, were rescinded weeks later when COVID-19 really took hold.)

It is possible there will be a second round of registrations selected this year, but last year may well have been a fluke caused by an unprecedented global event.  (01.Apr.2021)
