The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)  announced plans to release several enhancements to legal representatives’ and employers’ existing or new H-1B registration accounts that would include permitting online filing of Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigration Worker for H-1B petitioners.

While an exact release date has not been provided yet, USCIS aims to enable online filing for both Form I-129 and associated premium processing requests (Form I-907) for H-1B petitions related to Fiscal Year 2025. Paper filings will continue to be accepted as well.

USCIS will host several informational sessions and plans to post more details on the H-1B Electronic Registration Process Page as it becomes available.
