USCIS Changes Direct Filing Addresses for Certain Nonimmigrant Worker Petitions

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently changed the direct filing addresses for certain petitioners using Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker. The changes include:

  • Petitioners should now file Form I-129 according to the state where the company or organization’s primary office is located. Previously, petitioners filed their I-129s based on the beneficiary’s temporary employment or training location.
  • Petitioners located in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas should now file Form I-129 at the California Service Center.

Starting November 11, 2017, USCIS may reject Form I-129s that are filed at the wrong service center.
