According to USCIS’s recent announcement, prospective petitioners must first electronically register and pay the $10 H-1B registration fee for each prospective beneficiary in order to file H-1B cap-subject petitions, including for beneficiaries qualifying for the advanced degree exemption. Employers looking to file H-1B cap-subject petitions can save money overall by using the electronic registration procedure, which speeds processing by minimizing paperwork and data exchange.
In accordance with this procedure, prospective petitioners (registrants), and their authorized representatives, who are looking to hire H-1B workers subject to the cap, must complete a registration process that necessitates the provision of basic information about each requested worker and the prospective petitioner. Thereafter, using correctly submitted electronic registrations, the H-1B selection procedure is conducted. The only people qualified to submit H-1B cap-subject petitions are those having specific registrations.
There is no necessity to register on the day the initial registration period opens because selections are made after the initial registration period closes.
Update on the H-1B registration process for FY 2024
USCIS stressed that more than 48,000 potential petitioners registered, and almost 31% of all eligible registrations asked to be taken into consideration for the advanced degree exemption. According to regulation, USCIS determines the number of petitions required to reach the H-1B ceiling for a particular fiscal year by using historical data regarding approvals, denials, revocations, and other pertinent variables.
