U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that a duplicate Petition for Non-Immigrant Workers (PIMs) copy is no longer needed for Form I-129 submissions unless the agency specifically asks for it.
“Due to enhanced electronic scanning capabilities and data-sharing with the U.S. Department of State, duplicate copies are no longer needed to avoid delays in consular processing.”
U.S.- based employers complete Form I-129 to petition USCIS for a non-immigrant worker to come to the United States temporarily to perform services or labor or to receive training for the following non-immigrant worker visas:
In addition to the application form, the employer and foreign worker must also provide additional documentation. There is also an interview component to the process that most workers must comply with. The applicant is required to travel to the nearest consulate or embassy for the interview to take place.
The guidance of legal counsel could make a tremendous difference for a foreign employee. Because of this, an experienced employment immigration attorney can assist with preparing for every aspect of this process, from filing the application to preparing for an interview. With the right help, a potential immigrant might be able to secure the exact permit they need to achieve their career goals and save the employer and potential foreign employee time, stress – and money.
