Form I-129 Revised by USCIS

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (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 21, 2010.

Please keep the following dates in mind:

November 23, 2010 – revised form available on

December 21, 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 22, 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)”
