Nebraska Service Center Begins Processing Certain H-1B Petitions


On June 1, 2016, USCIS announced that the Nebraska Service Center would begin accepting H-1B petitions filed with a basis of classification of "Continuation of previously approved employment without change with the same employer" effective July 1, 2016. USCIS further noted that the Vermont Service Center and California Service Center would continue accepting those petitions during a transition period ending on August 31, 2016. Now that the transition period has ended, the Nebraska Service Center is the only USCIS service center accepting such H-1B petitions.
