New Form I-129S

Effective August 29, 2016, applicants for “L” visas under approved company "blankets" are required to submit the new Form I-129S. As detailed below, this new form and its requirements will put a greater burden on companies utilizing this procedure which, despite the increased demands, will continue to offer a far more efficient alternative than individual “L” petitions filed with USCIS:

A longer form (8 pages rather than 4 pages)A separate letter from the overseas employer including job titles, dates of employment, job descriptions, salaries (in U.S. dollars), hours worked, etc.Percentage of time spent on various duties performed for the proposed U.S. assignmentWhen applicable, greater details regarding “third-party” placements
