USCIS to Propose Registration Requirement for H-1B Petitions Subject to Numerical Limits

leave a comment »

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) proposes to establish a mandatory Internet-based electronic registration process for U.S. employers seeking to file H-1B petitions for alien workers subject to either the 65,000 or 20,000 caps. This registration process would allow U.S. employers to electronically register for consideration of available H-1B cap numbers. The mandatory proposed registration process is aimed to alleviate administrative burdens on USCIS service centers and eliminate the need for U.S. employers to prepare and file H-1B petitions without any certainty that an H-1B cap number will ultimately be allocated to the beneficiary named on that petition.
