On 8 January 2021, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published the final rules instituting a wage-based selection system for registered, cap-subject H-1B cases. The DHS intended to replace the existing lottery system for H-1B registration with the new rules on 9 March 2021.

The DHS now announces that it will delay the implementation of the new system until 31 December 2021.
