In response to an inquiry from the DOS Liaison Committee, the Visa Office confirms that an employer who filed a petition for initial blanket L classification prior to June 6, 2005 may continue to bring in blanket qualified workers with only 6 months of qualifying employment. The Visa Office indicated that USCIS concurs with this policy, which is subject to continuing examination by the agencies.
State Dept. and USCIS reconsidered and reversed this position on 6/8/06.
