Important New Export Control Regulations on I-129 Petitions for Non-Immigrant Workers

New United States citizenship and Immigration Services regulations become active November 23, 2010, and the use of a new petition form is mandatory as of December 22, 2010 for H-1B, L-1 or O-1A workers. Although the Office of International Students and Scholars will submit the petition, individuals must first make a determination about whether there are export control compliance issues to be resolved.
