- USCIS has announced plans to improve customer experience for the FY 2025 H-1B cap season
- USCIS will launch collaborative organizational accounts in February 2024

To provide a better customer experience for the upcoming fiscal year (FY) 2025 H-1B cap season, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced several improvements.
In February 2024, USCIS plans to launch organizational accounts that allow multiple individuals within an organization, including companies or other business entities and legal representatives, to collaborate on preparing both cap-subject and non-cap-subject H-1B registrations. This change will reduce common errors when submitting H-1B visa registrations, including submitting duplicates, and streamline the process. Shortly after it launches the organizational accounts, USCIS plans to launch online filing for Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service, and Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker.
What Should Employers Know?
To prepare for this change, USCIS will hold several national engagements on January 23, 2024, and January 24, 2024, to assist organizations and legal representatives with the new process. Individuals involved in the H-1B registration and petition filing process are encouraged to visit the USCIS Contact Public Engagement page to learn more about the engagements and subscribe to receive notifications on other related upcoming engagements. USCIS will also provide more details on the new organizational accounts on its H-1B Electronic Registration Process page.
