H-1B Electronic Registration Process: Registrants

H-1B Electronic Registration Process: Registrants

February 25, 2020 0 By Kailee Schamberger


It’s quick and easy to
sign up to submit registrations that provide the opportunity to
file petitions for H-1B workers as a prospective petitioner,
First, go to my.uscis.gov. If you already have a MyUSCIS
account, click ‘sign in’ and enter your email and password. If you
don’t have an account, click ‘Sign up’ and follow the
instructions to create your account. If you have an account,
choose how you would like to receive your verification code
and enter it when you receive it. Next for your account type
select I am an ‘H-1B registrant.’ If you are working with a legal
representative do not click ‘File a registration.’ Your
representative will prepare the registration and will provide
you with a passcode so you can review it. You can enter that
passcode here. If you are not filing with a representative click ‘File
a registration.’ After reading through the H-1B overview
screens click starts to create your registration. Next, you’ll provide information
about you, the registrant, and about the beneficiary. After you
have provided information about the beneficiary, click ‘Save
entry’ And then you can add registrations for additional
beneficiaries and effectively create a batch submission by
clicking ‘Add another beneficiary.’ You can submit
registrations for up to 250 beneficiaries per submission. In
other words, up to 250 registrations in one batch. If
you wish to submit registrations for more than 250 beneficiaries,
simply repeat the entire registration process again to
create a new batch of registrations for the additional
beneficiaries. You’ll have the chance to review your
registration or registrations before submission. A red alert
message will let you know that you have not completed all
fields and required information. A green alert means you can
proceed to the next step. Next, you will electronically
sign and certify the registration or registrations. The final step is to pay the
required fee. $10 for each registration, meaning $10 for
each beneficiary registered in a batch submission. You will then
be taken to the pay. gov website where you will provide your
payment information and hit submit. Congratulations. You
have successfully submitted an H-1B registration. You can go
into your account at any time to check the status of your
registration. You’ll even be able to download a CSV file of
all the beneficiaries you registered, which can be useful
to verify that you have not submitted duplicate
registrations for the same beneficiary. That would result
in all registrations for that beneficiary submitted by your
company for that fiscal year being invalid. Once you submit a
registration, you won’t be able to edit it. You will, however,
have the ability to delete a registration. For example, if
you discover an error after submission, until the time that
the initial registration period closes, and submit a separate
registration with a new $10 fee. You can delete an individual
registration even if submitted as part of a batch without
affecting the other registrations submitted with
that batch. Deleted registrations will not have
their $10 fee refunded. We will notify you by March 31, 2020 if
registrations you submitted are selected. You’ll need to log
into your account to view the notifications. Notifications will
include one of the following four statuses: Submitted, a
registration status may continue to show submitted after the
initial selection process has been completed. Submitted
registrations will remain in consideration for selection
until the end of the fiscal year, at which point all
registration statuses will be selected, not selected or
denied. Selected. This means you were selected to file a fiscal
year 2021 H-1B cap subject petition. Not selected. This
means you were not selected for this fiscal year. Denied. More
than one registration was submitted for the same
prospective petitioner for the same beneficiary and for the
same fiscal year. All registrations the prospective
petitioner submitted on behalf of the same beneficiary for the
same fiscal year are invalid. For each initial registration
period, we will announce the anticipated opening and closing
dates. Remember, go to my.uscis.gov to begin the
registration process.
