The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that the Texas Service Center will begin processing Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker petitions for L nonimmigrant classification on February 12, 2018 [PDF version]. The Texas Service Center will share the L nonimmigrant petition workload with the California Service Center. As of February 12, the Vermont Service Center will no longer process any L nonimmigrant petitions.

The USCIS notice reminds L nonimmigrant petitioners that they should file the Form I-129 for L nonimmigrant status “at the address indicated on the Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker page.”

Beginning on March 12, 2018, the USCIS may begin rejecting any L nonimmigrant petitions filed at the wrong USCIS service center.

L nonimmigrant petitioners should consult with an experienced immigration attorney for case-specific guidance throughout the process. To learn more about the L nonimmigrant visa category, please see our selection of articles on the subject [see category].
