How to Create an H-1B Registrant Account

The electronic H-1B registration process is a preliminary step an employer must complete now (deadline March 25) before they can file H-1B visa petitions on behalf of foreign nationals with specialized degrees (also known as “requested workers”) who have never had H-1B status.

To register, you must have a myUSCIS account. Here’s a quick guide on how to create it:
