U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced today that it will hold a webinar on the new H-1B online registration process for employers filing cap petitions this season.

Key points:

  • The webinar will be held Feb. 6 at 2-3:30 p.m. EST. You may view the invitation here and sign up to attend at the USCIS webinar registration page.
  • During the webinar, USCIS representatives will instruct H-1B petitioners on the H-1B online registration process in the myUSCIS portal.
  • The agency will hold another webinar specifically geared toward attorneys and representatives on Feb. 11 at 2-3:30 p.m.

Background: USCIS announced earlier this month that it is implementing the new H-1B online registration process for the upcoming cap season. The registration period opens March 1 and is expected to end on March 20. During this period, H-1B petitioners must submit an online registration for each prospective H-1B candidate. Before submitting registrations, employers must set up an online account on myUSCIS, and USCIS will post on its website the date when they may begin that process. Employers intending to register H-1B cap candidates for the upcoming cap season are encouraged to attend the webinar.
