USCIS Announces Launch of Organizational Accounts for Enhanced Collaboration and Online Submission of H-1B Registrations   

Release Date: 01/12/2024

In a significant move aimed at improving customer experience during the H-1B cap season, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) revealed plans to introduce organizational accounts for non-cap filings and the fiscal year (FY) 2025 H-1B cap season. These enhancements are designed to boost efficiency and facilitate seamless collaboration for organizations and their legal representatives.

Scheduled to debut in February 2024, organizational accounts will empower multiple individuals within an organization, including company representatives and legal advisors, to collaboratively prepare H-1B registrations, Form I-129 (Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker), and associated Form I-907 (Request for Premium Processing Service). Once launched, these accounts will enable a fully electronic H-1B lifecycle, from registration to USCIS's final decision and transmission to the Department of State.

USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou expressed enthusiasm about the initiative, stating, “USCIS is always striving to improve and streamline our processes, and this is a big step forward.” The introduction of organizational accounts aligns with USCIS's commitment to continuous improvement.

In addition to organizational accounts, USCIS will introduce online filing for Forms I-129 and I-907, further enhancing the efficiency of the H-1B petition process. This transition to a fully electronic system aims to minimize common errors and reduce duplicate H-1B registrations.

To facilitate engagement and guidance, USCIS will host two national sessions on organizational accounts on Jan. 23 and 24, along with smaller sessions leading up to the H-1B registration period. These engagements provide an opportunity for organizations and legal representatives to ask questions and prepare for the FY 2025 H-1B electronic registration process and the launch of online filing for Form I-129.

As part of efficiency improvement measures, USCIS will transition the paper filing location for Forms I-129 and I-907 from service centers to the USCIS lockbox.

For further details and information on organizational accounts, USCIS encourages individuals involved in the H-1B registration and petition filing process to attend the upcoming engagements. Invitations to these sessions will be sent later this month. Visit the Contact Public Engagement page to subscribe to notifications about upcoming engagements. Additional information about organizational accounts will be available on the H-1B Electronic Registration Process page.
