There are a few practical tips to keep in mind when creating and maintaining my.uscis.gov registration accounts:

USCIS rules prohibit an individual account holder from sharing their account with administrative assistants or other employees. Therefore, you want to be sure that the person creating the account will be personally available throughout the entire H-1B lottery Registration time-period.
2. Chose your email associated with the account wisely!
Once you create an account associated with a particular email address you cannot then alter that account, or switch the account to a new email address. Make sure your attorney is aware of the correct email address associated with your account so they can use that email address when creating registration forms and properly link the forms to your account.
3. Make sure you create a “Registrant Account” and not a general myuscis account.
When going through the account creation process be sure to select “I am a Registrant” from the account type options. If you accidentally register for the wrong type of account you will not be able to complete an H-1B registration. Also, the system will not allow you to edit the account once it is created and you will be forced to use a different email address when creating to the correct account type.
