New H-1B e-Registration Period Will Begin in Less Than 2 Months

Just an initial reminder that the H-1B e-Registration period will be opening in less than 2 months (at the beginning of March 2023) like years past. As most are likely aware, the USCIS announced changes to the H-1B lottery process several years ago, including how the lottery is conducted. Pursuant to this new USCIS process, the lottery will first be conducted electronically, followed by the submission of an H-1B petition for only lottery winners.

To be eligible for the lottery, the new process requires H-1B petitioners to register potential H-1B cases prior to the submission of an H-1B filing. Immediately after this registration period closes, the USCIS will conduct the lottery. Once the lottery winners are announced and notified via email, the petitioner shall have ninety (90) days to submit the completed H-1B petition to the USCIS.

A reminder to please let us know of any candidates you wish to sponsor for this lottery so we can send you an email with what is required accordingly, which will then allow GG&W to review the case in greater detail prior to the e-registration deadline. As always, we are also happy to discuss with any particular candidate whom your company is thinking of sponsoring for an H-1B visa (or any other type of visa) in 2023 or beyond.
