Reminder to Complete Part 6 on Form I-129Posted by Murali Bashyam on Feb 27, 2011 in H1B Visas, News | 0 comments
In November 2010, USCIS published a revised Form I-129, Petition for a NonimmigrantAn alien who seeks temporary entry to the United States for a specific purpose. The alien must have a permanent residence abroad (for most classes of admission) and qualify for the nonimmigrant classification sought. The nonimmigrant classifications include: foreign government officials, visitors for business and for pleasure, aliens in transit through the United States, treaty traders and investors, students, international representatives, temporary workers and trainees, representatives of foreign information media, exchange visitors, fiance(e)s of U.S. citizens, intracompany transferees, NATO officials, religious workers, and some others. Most nonimmigrants can be accompanied or joined by spouses and unmarried minor (or dependent) children. 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.
