Registrants or representatives (such as attorneys) must pay the $10 non-refundable registration fee before submitting their application. Once you have successfully applied or registered, your USCIS online account will show your current status. Your account will show “submitted” status, and eventually show selected, not selected, or denied depending on the decision.
The petition filing process for a H-1B visa is as follows:
For U.S. companies to employ nonimmigrant foreign workers, they must adhere to the Department of Labor standards. Wages must be paid to the H-1B workers at least equal to the wage paid to other workers with similar qualifications.
