Important Dates for H-1B Online Registration

By: Angelita Chavez | March 01, 2020

H-1B visa season is now open! Employers can register their H-1B beneficiaries online at myUSCIS through March 20, 2020 at 12:00 PM EST. It is important to have your immigration attorney evaluate your prospective H-1B employees before online registration, so that you can ensure you only petition for employees that qualify. Once you have determined that a beneficiary qualifies, gather information required for online H-1B registration in advance. Unlike prior years, completed petitions are only required for H-1B beneficiaries that are selected in the lottery.

Employers are notified of selected beneficiaries by March 31, 2020. All completed H-1B petitions are due 90 days after this date.

H-1B Deadlines:
  • March 20, 2020 at 12:00 PM EST: Employers must submit all online registrations for prospective H-1B visa beneficiaries by this date.
  • March 31, 2020: Employers are notified of beneficiaries who have been selected in the lottery.
  • 90 days after March 31, 2020: Complete H-1B petitions are due for every selected beneficiary.

For help evaluating your H-1B candidates, or to learn more about the process, send us an email at
