Changes in I-129 Filing Addresses

On October 12, 2017, USCIS changed the direct filing addresses for certain petitioners of Form I-129.  Specifically,


  • Petitioners will now file Form I-129 according to the state where the company or organization’s primary office is located. (no longer based on the beneficiary’s temporary employment or training location.)
  • Petitioners located in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Texas will now file Form I-129 at the California Service Center.

The I-129 form is used by U.S. employers to petition for non-immigrant workers.

Starting November 11, 2017, USCIS may reject Form I-129s that are filed at the wrong service center.
