In Business Immigration, H-1B

If you’re an employer and are trying to obtain an H-1B visa for your prospective employee, or you’re an individual trying to apply for an H-1B visa, then this is the time to ACT NOW! USCIS has posted the deadline for H-1B registration in the electronic registration system for FY2023. In order to be considered for the H1B cap-subject petition selection this year you must register between March 1, 2022 and March 18, 2022 noon (EST).  After the registration period closes, USCIS will conduct a random selection process to determine who will be allowed to file an H-1B cap-subject petition this fiscal year. USCIS will notify the selected registrants via their myUSCIS account by March 31, 2022. Cap-subject selected petitions can begin filing their H-1b petitions on April 1, 2022. The petitioner may only file an H-1B cap-subject petition on behalf of the beneficiary named in the registration submitted during the H-1B registration process. Individuals cannot register in the system, only employers must submit registrations for each prospective employee they want to obtain an H-1B for. Therefore, if you are an employee, or are in conversation with a prospective employer, please inform them immediately to contact us to make sure you are registered in the system.

How can you as an employer or individual prepare for the registration process? FIRST AND FOREMOST CONTACT OUR OFFICE IMMEDIATELY IF INTERESTED IN FILING ANY H1B PETITIONS THIS YEAR. In order to register online, all companies will need to create a myUSCIS online account to register each potential employee they are seeking H1B status for.
