H-1B & FY 2025 H-1B Cap Updates: USCIS Launches Organizational Accounts

Share This Post

Today, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has officially launched its new platform for organizational accounts, enabling companies and their legal representatives to collaborate on FY 2025 H-1B electronic registration and the online filing of Form I-129 for H-1B petitions.

A new organizational account is required to participate in the FY 2025 H-1B Electronic Registration Process. The registration period for the H-1B Cap begins on March 6th, 2024, and ends on March 22nd, 2024. In the event of a potential government shutdown starting March 8th, it is important for companies to plan in advance and promptly submit their H-Cap registrations.

It is important to note that USCIS will require beneficiaries to provide valid passport or travel document information when registering for the H-1B Cap. Through a beneficiary centric approach, USCIS will associate each registrant with a single passport or travel document, serving as the beneficiary’s unique identifier. If selected in the H-1B Cap, individuals will be chosen based on their passport information rather than a company petitioning for them. Additionally, the passport or travel document provided must be the one the beneficiary intends to use to enter the United States if issued an H-1B visa.

Online filing of Form I-129 for H-1B petitions is also set to begin in March. From April 1st, USCIS will start accepting online filings for H-1B Cap petitions and associated Forms I-907 for petitioners with selected registrations.

We eagerly anticipate a collaborative engagement in the upcoming months on FY 2025 H-1B Cap petitions and I-129 H-1B petitions alike. Our services are readily available to provide assistance throughout the process, ensuring a seamless and successful immigration journey for your organization and employees. We will continue to update our partners on the latest developments. For more information on organizational accounts, please visit our website here.
