USCIS has revised the Form I-129, which employers use to petition for temporary workers in a variety of nonimmigrant visa classifications. The revised version of the form will be published on the same day that the final fee rule becomes effective: November 23, 2010. Once the revised version of the Form I-129 is published, USCIS will accept previous editions of the form for 30 days or until December 22, 2010.
As you prepare your petitions, please keep the following dates in mind:
- November 23, 2010 - revised form available on www.uscis.gov
- December 22, 2010 - last day that USCIS can accept previous editions of the form
(NOTE: This means that petitions must be postmarked or filed on or before this date for the previous edition to be accepted)
- December 23, 2010 - USCIS will only accept the revised form with the Nov. 23, 2010 revision date and will reject requests using previous editions of the form
(NOTE: This means that petitions postmarked or filed on or after this date require the revised version)
