Immigration Visas for High-Tech Workers: The New Electronic Registration Process

Employers will face significant new hurdles in the H-1B process including a new Electronic Registration Process starting in March 2020, which represents the most significant change in H-1B process in the last decade. The new Electronic Registration Process allows employers to initially submit an H-1B lottery electronic application without incurring the time and expense of preparing the traditional government forms.

Additionally, employers nationwide have experienced increased H-1B denials, as the government continues to scrutinize entry-level computer-related occupations. National approval rates stand at 68%, which is a four-fold increase in the number of denials versus two years ago.

Join immigration attorney Roger Tsai to learn how to respond effectively to RFEs and position your organization for a successful H-1B process. Topics covered will include:

  • Establishing a Bachelor's degree requirement for a position
  • Creating a nexus between beneficiary’s skill set and relation between his/her degree and occupation
  • Providing evidence that a position qualifies as a “specialty occupation”
  • Adapting to the new Electronic Registration Process and how it will affect the H-1B lottery timeline
  • Understanding the impact of the Electronic Registration Process on international students under OPT
