Reminder to Complete Part 6 on Form I-129

In November 2010, USCIS published a revised Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, which became effective on Dec. 23, 2010. Due to a number of inquiries regarding Part 6 of the Form I-129, “Certification Regarding the Release of Controlled Technology or Technical Data to Foreign Persons in the United States”, USCIS advised petitioners that they would not be required to complete this section until Feb. 20, 2011. Now that date has passed and employers filing cases postmarked on or after Feb. 20, 2011 must have completed Part 6 of the Form I-129.

We will be posting more information on the Controlled Technology Certification shortly at www.bashyamspiro.com.
