The H-1B visa program, a cornerstone of the United States’ immigration system, enables US companies to hire foreign workers with specialized skills. In a bid to streamline the process and enhance integrity, the US announced significant changes to the H-1B visa process for 2025.

Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to apply for an H1-B visa before the deadline:

Step 1: Determine Your Account Type

There are three types of accounts relevant to the H-1B Visa:

  • Applicant/Petitioner/Requestor Account: Used by individuals to compile and submit applications, petitions, or other benefit requests. However, this account cannot be used for H-1B registrations.
  • Attorney/Representative Account: Utilized by attorneys or accredited representatives handling H-1B registrations for potential petitioners. They can also submit Form G-28.
  • Organizational Account (formerly Registrant Account): Required for prospective petitioners to engage in the H-1B registration process.

Step 2: Create USCIS Online Account

  1. Visit the USCIS website for online account creation:
  2. Select the appropriate account type based on your role: Organization or Legal Representative.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to create your account, providing your email address, creating a password, and answering security questions.

Step 3: Key Considerations and Mistakes to Avoid with H-1B Online Registration

a. Select the Right Type of Account: Ensure you choose the appropriate account type to avoid complications during the registration process.

b. Avoid Duplication: Do not enter the same beneficiary more than once to prevent errors and potential disqualification.

c. Registration Fee: A $10 fee is required for each registration submitted.

Important Dates:

  • February 28th, 2024: Petitioners and registrants can begin creating H-1B registrant accounts at noon Eastern.
  • March 6th, 2024: H-1B registration period opens at noon Eastern.
  • March 22nd, 2024: H-1B registration period closes at noon Eastern.
  • March 31st, 2024: Date by which USCIS intends to notify selected registrants.
  • April 1st, 2024: The earliest date that FY 2025 H-1B cap-subject petitions based on the registrations selected during the initial FY 2025 selection period may be filed.

By following these steps and adhering to the outlined dates, applicants can navigate the H-1B visa registration process seamlessly, ensuring their submissions are accurate and timely.
