U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Friday that its H-1B electronic registration period would open at noon ET on March 1 and will close at noon ET on March 17.
BAL Analysis: USCIS received a record 484,927 H-1B registrations last year. Demand for H-1B visas will likely be high again this cap season, even with some signs of a hiring slowdown. Employers are encouraged to work closely with BAL regarding the immigration benefits employers can offer (e.g., immediate green card sponsorship), which petitions should be fully prepped before the registration lottery, and possible H-1B alternatives for registrations that are not selected. BAL will provide updates on cap season as information becomes available.
