Reminder H-1B Lottery Employer Account Set-Up Starts February 28

February 28, 2024 is the initial date employers may create an online USCIS account for the annual H-1B visa registration and lottery process.  The initial registration allows for new beneficiary-centric, one unique registration for a foreign national employee, to be eligible for filing the H-1B visa petition. The account creation and lottery registration is critical for current employees with time limited F-1 student visa employment authorization to transition to longer term H-1B visa employment authorization.  The H-1B visa lottery registration will close March 22, 2024.

Further details on the USCIS online accounts for employers and H-1B lottery registration can be found in our February 5 client alert here.

If you have any questions about the H-1B visa registration and lottery process, please contact a member of the Miller Johnson Immigration Practice Group.
