Form I-129 and Copy of the Export Control License

Regarding Part 6 of Form I-129, does USCIS require a copy of the export control license if one is necessary?

No. At this time, USCIS does not require a copy of the export control license as part of the nonimmigrant visa petition process.

Supervisory CBP Officer initiated to have the cancellation reviewed

For a CBP port of entry, what is the procedure available to seek supervisory review of an officer’s refusal to admit a visitor due to the period of time he or she was previously present in the U.S.?

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) indicates that, in instances in which an officer refuses to admit a visitor due to the period of time he/she was previously present in the U.S., the applicant can ask to speak to the Supervisory CBP Officer who is assigned to the area in which the inspection took place.

O Visa Applicant Applying for Green Card

I have an O-1 visa. Can I apply for a Green Card?

You may be able to apply for a Green Card if you meet the requirements of EB-1 (Aliens with Extraordinary Ability) based upon a job offer, or if a family-based possibility exists.

Prevailing Wage

Rather than requiring that the full survey methodology be submitted with every prevailing wage request, can DOL recognize that certain surveys (i.e., Towers Watson, Radford, CHIPS One) employ a statistically valid methodology, and only require documentation that supports the specific wage request, such as the wage, level, location, and job description for the requested job opportunity?

Methodology can change within a survey among different occupations, so it is necessary for DOL to receive full survey methodology with each prevailing wage request, even for a commonly used alternate wage survey.

H-1B petition and Quota

I am in the US in F-1 status. I just received a job offer and the company is ready to sponsor my H-1B. When can we apply for my H-1B visa?

If the employer is exempt from the quota, they may apply at any time. If they are subject to the quota, they can file the H-1B petition to reach USCIS no earlier than April 1, 2013, with a requested start date of employment no earlier than October 1, 2013.

Comment: 

I can thank Mr Rajiv Khanna million times for what nature of practice his firm has. I still have an intangible immigrational problem in US, having business there and not able to go, son is suffering with illness but able to go, very confussed, looking all around for any kind of help. Most of the law firm wanted to get the money before even talking. But when we contacted Mr Khanna's firm, without creating any hurddles, confirmed my personal conference with him and guided me to right direction to try and given me hope to come back again. That was his incredible sevices ever any body can immagine.

DHS Update on The Impact of Counting Changes on Nonimmigrant Admissions

This report provides an update on trends in I-94 non-immigrant admissions and the estimated number of individual nonimmigrants admitted to the United States. In 2005, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) began an effort to record all land admissions of an I-94 nonimmigrant; previously, only the initial admission was typically recorded. This process was completed at nearly all pedestrian crossings and vehicular lanes along the Southwest and Northern borders by March 2010. Increases in admissions after 2005 as reported by OIS are partly due to the counting changes.
