DHS Plans to Propose Modifications to the H-1B Registration System Regulations

During the registration period for the FY 2024 H-1B cap, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) saw a significant increase in the number of registrations submitted compared to prior years.

USCIS said that the large number of eligible registrations for beneficiaries with multiple eligible registrations, which was much larger than in previous years, has raised serious concerns that some may have attempted to obtain an unfair advantage by collaborating to submit several registrations on behalf of the same beneficiary. This may have unfairly increased their chances of selection. The USCIS has initiated extensive fraud investigations and revoked petitions to ensure integrity of the application process.

Furthermore, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to propose regulatory modifications to strengthen the H-1B registration process, among other things, to decrease the likelihood of misuse and fraud in the H-1B registration system. See attached pdf below for further information.
