U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently announced it is changing the way it allocates the annual quota of H-1B visas. Companies seeking a new H-1B visa must first register online before they will be eligible to petition for a visa. The initial registration period opened at noon Eastern on March 1 and will remain open through noon Eastern on March 20. Employers interested in seeking one of these visas in 2020 must act quickly; otherwise, they must wait until next year when a new allotment is available.
