We have published all labor petitions filed during the first six months of fiscal year 2021 through the upgraded LCA system.

From October 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, Department of Labor made decisions on 213,481 labor condition applications for H-1B visa jobs. The numbers of recent two years were much lower than those of previous years due to the new H-1B electronic registration process implemented in March,2020:employers do no have to file petitions before they receive the lottery winner notice.
