The United States of America have been considered the land of opportunity, where people from different countries come to fulfill their dreams to have a better life. The USCIS H-1B visa program is one such opportunity that allows skilled workers to work and live in the USA (The Economic Times, 2022). This allows US employers to hire foreign workers for specialized occupations requiring technical or theoretical expertise. On March of every fiscal year, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) opens H-1B registration for 3 weeks or so to give Employers the chance to register the applicants they want to sponsor and petition. The competition can be fierce to obtain USCIS H-1B Status (American Immigration Council, 2022).
The anticipation for the H-1B registration process for FY 2023-2024 has just started, and the excitement among the applicants is palpable. From March 1 to March 17, 2023, the USCIS will accept registrations for the fiscal year 2024 quota. This is a golden opportunity for candidates looking to work and live in the USA, and time is of the essence. This work authorization program has been a critical factor in the success of many companies in the USA. This has also been an excellent way for companies to diversify their workforce and bring in fresh ideas and perspectives (Bart Ziegler, 2022).
However, the H-1B process can be daunting, especially for those unfamiliar with the program. It requires a lot of paperwork, and the registration period is only for a limited time. Statistics and previous years show tens of thousands of skilled immigrants petition for this highly sought-after work authorization program each year. For FY 2023, USCIS received 483,927 registered applications, of which USCIS will choose only 127,600 (26%) registrants to complete the numerical allocations. (USCIS, 2023). Since so many people file for an employment petition each year, USCIS places an annual limit on the number of H-1B visas issued and conducts a yearly selection process to determine the applicants and petitions which can proceed with this process.
As only a small percentage of applicants are chosen yearly, we've outlined the steps on how to prepare for the 2024 H-1B Visa application.
