USCIS Will Launch Organizational Accounts and Online Filing for Forms I-129

In February, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will launch online organizational accounts
and make Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, available for online filing for H-1B
petitioners for fiscal year (FY) 2025.

What You Need to Know
All legal representative account holders and all organizations with an H-1B registrant account, as well
as new users, will experience new account enhancements, including improved design and case
management features.


H-1B petitioners will be able to file Forms I-129 and associated Form I-907 premium processing
requests online through their organizational account, have a legal representative file online on
their behalf, or file a paper-based Form I-129. The H-1B registration process is only available
online.


USCIS conducted usability testing on the organizational account with individuals who serve a variety
of roles in the H-1B registration and petition filing processes, including employers, human resources
personnel, attorneys, and paralegals. The feedback received resulted in enhancements to content
and improvements in interactions and functionality throughout the organizational account.
USCIS will continue to seek feedback from users of the organizational account and release
enhancements to the experience in the future.


For More Information
USCIS will host two national engagements on organizational accounts on Jan. 23 and Jan. 24, as well
as several smaller sessions leading up to the H-1B registration period to help guide organizations
and legal representatives through the process. During these sessions, individuals will have the
opportunity to ask questions about the organizational accounts in preparation for the FY 2025 H1B registration period and the launch of online filing of Form I-129 H-1B petitions.
