USCIS to Reject Incomplete Form I-129

Starting on August 5, 2019, USCIS will reject any Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker that do not include the Petitioner or Applicant’s name and primary U.S. office address in Part 1 of the form. The petitioner’s or applicant’s primary U.S. office address in Part 1 of Form I-129 must not be the address of the petitioner’s or applicant’s outside counsel or clients. Failure to include the petitioner’s or applicant’s name or providing the address of the petitioner’s or applicant’s outside counsel or clients in Part 1 creates unnecessary delays in the adjudication of Form I-129 and may result in its rejection.

USCIS currently already reject forms that do not have signatures, or have incorrect fees, or had unauthorized third party signing on behalf of the petitioner. The Form I-129 is used for a variety of different employment based applications including the H-1B, E-3, L visa, EB-1, O Visa, and more. E-2 Visa applicants who are in the United States and choose to submit an application with USCIS will also use the Form I-129 to apply. Please click on the links to learn more about each visa. It’s always a good idea to use the checklists USCIS provides for each application and double check forms before submission to prevent delays in processing.
