USCIS Revises Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has revised Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker. The revised Form I-129 is labeled with an October 23, 2014, edition date. It expires on October 31, 2016.

Starting on May 1, 2015, USCIS will accept only the October 23, 2014, edition of the I-129. USCIS will not accept previous editions of the I-129 on or after May 1, 2015.

Among other things, the revised form includes a question on the H classification supplement that asks, “Does any beneficiary in this petition have ownership interest in the petitioning organization?”
