The rule would be codified at 8 C.F.R. 103.7(b)(1)(i)(NNN). The H1B registration rule was codified on January 31, 2019, although it has been suspended for H1B petitions subject to the FY 2020 cap.

The registration fee rule is a proposed rule and is not currently effective. Under the proposed rule, the USCIS would reject or deny H1B cap-subject petitions submitted without the $10 registration fee. Members of the public may submit comments on the proposed rule through October 4, 2019. We will update the website if the USCIS proceeds with publishing a final rule providing for an H1B registration fee.
