[Guide] The Employer’s Guide to FY 2025 H-1B Cap Season

Last Updated on December 19, 2023

The H-1B is one of the most sought-after employment-based visas. However, with a cap of 85,000 visas annually, it’s important for human resources professionals and hiring managers to understand the H-1B process and plan accordingly at their organizations.

Planning is especially important now because in recent years, we’ve seen considerable changes to the H-1B process, from selecting petitions in the regular cap first to the introduction of electronic registration. Working with legal counsel ahead of time to develop a plan and determine next steps for both the company and the foreign nationals who will be entering the lottery helps ensure a seamless experience throughout the petition process.

Position yourself for success during the FY 2025 H-1B cap season, starting in March 2024 with electronic registration. Download our helpful guide to H-1B cap season to learn more about:

  • H-1B visa requirements
  • H-1B documents needed
  • Electronic registration overview
  • How to navigate requests for evidence (RFEs)

Always consult with legal counsel for more detailed information and help with any questions that come up along the way.
