USCIS has changed the direct filing addresses for where to file certain forms for beneficiaries who will be working or training in Florida, Georgia, or North Carolina. The changes are as follows: 

  • Starting May 20, 2017, anyone requesting L, O, or P nonimmigrant status for a beneficiary who will be working or training in Florida, Georgia, or North Carolina must file the Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker and/or Form I-129S, Nonimmigrant Petition Based on Blanket L Petition with the California Service Center. Starting July 20, 2017, USCIS will reject forms sent to the wrong service center. 
  • If you are filing a P major league sports-related petition, you must continue to file Form I-129 with the Vermont Service Center. 

Please go to USCIS Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker web page to determine where to file your forms.
