H-1B visas registrations for 2024 to begin today
The highly anticipated H-1B visa filing season for fiscal 2023-24 will officially begin on March 1 when the US immigration agency will start accepting applications for skilled foreign workers visas.
The H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa that enables American companies to hire foreign workers for specialised positions that call for theoretical or technical expertise. It is crucial to the hiring of thousands of workers from nations like China and India by technology companies every year.
The initial registration period for the fiscal year 2024 H-1B cap will open at noon Eastern on March 1 and run through noon Eastern on March 17, 2023, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services in a press release. It added that petitioners and representatives will be able to finish and submit their registrations during this time using its online H-1B registration system – myUSCIS.
The UCIS will assign a confirmation number to each registration submitted for the FY24 H-1B visa. The assigned number will be used solely for tracking registrations and can’t be used for knowing the case status in Case Status Online. (Source Business Today)
