Today, USCIS announced that it has created an option for online filing of Form I-129 for new H-1B cases subject to the FY 2025 cap. There will be an enhancement in the already existing portal for H-1B registrations that, among other things, will enable cases selected in the lottery to be filed online.
The announcement specifically states that Form I-129 and Form I-907 for premium processing will be eligible for online submission. This change came about after USCIS sought feedback from employers and attorneys.
One of the specific improvements will be organizational accounts that will enable better collaboration between companies and their legal counsel. Company representatives and their authorized legal representatives will all be able to log into the same account, which will increase visibility and coordination.
USCIS will continue to allow physical paper filings of H-1B cap cases for the FY 2025 cap season for any companies wishing to do so instead of filing online.
USCIS will be hosting multiple forums to provide additional information in the coming weeks. We will provide updates as they become available. In the meantime, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org; (408) 715-7067 with any questions.
