The Department of Homeland Security has begun the process of implementing a fee for those applying for an H-1B visa through the upcoming online registration system.

There has, thus far, been no indication of what that fee might be but no doubt there will be some media discussion as to how the added cost might affect the profile of those in a position to apply for a U.S. visa, or indeed if citizens of certain countries might be disproportionately impacted.
