Registrations for US H-1B Visa to start from March 1 for fiscal year 2023

  • Rajneesh Kumar
  • 31 January, 2023

The primary registrations for H-1B visas of USA will open on March 1 until March 23 for the fiscal year 2023. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (UCIS) has confirmed this in the latest press release. During this period, potential petitioners and representatives can complete and submit their registrations through the online H-1B registration system.

US H-1B visa- registration from 1 March

The US H-1B visa is a non-immigrant visa. A huge number of Indians apply for this visa program. The companies in United States of America can recruit eligible Indians through this visa programme. In a financial year that began in October in America, 65,000 H-1B visas are issued while 20,000 visas are reserved for US Masters' degree holders. In the fiscal year 2021, top recipients of H-1B visas were following groups: Amazon, Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services and Cognizant

Initial registration process of H-1B

Find below the primary registration process of this popular US visa:

  • Once registration is done, the US immigration department will allot a confirmation number to track registrations. However, this number is not for the candidates to track the status of the registrations.
  • Potential H-1B cap-subject petitioners or their representatives needed to use a myUSCIS online account to register each beneficiary online for the selection process and pay the amount of $10 as H-1B registration fee for each registration submitted on behalf of each beneficiary.
  • Potential petitioners submitting their own registrations (U.S. employers and U.S. agents, collectively known as “registrants”) will use a “registrant” account. Registrants can create new accounts starting at noon Eastern on Feb. 21.
  • As per the department, if sufficient registrations are received by March 18, then it will randomly choose registrations and send selection notifications through users’ myUSCIS online accounts.

Popularity of Canadian Visas among Indians caused the drop in H-1B program

As per Bloomberg News analysis, US employers’ initial applications submitted for engineering & mathematics jobs under the H-1B visa program dropped 12.6% in the fiscal year ending September 2021 compared to the past year. This fall was credited to the slow visa processing during lockdown and to the growing popularity of Canadian visas among Indians.

Easy Canada PR process through Express Entry

Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) Visa is largely popular among overseas immigration aspirants. The online point-based Express Entry System makes it easy for the applicants to apply for visa and get the Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) Visa approval within 6 months, whereas, converting H-1B Visa in to US Green Card takes from six months to 2 years or even more at times.
