USCIS Issues New Rule about Change in H-1B’s Location

The California Service Center has issued a new policy about filing amended H-1B petitions for H-1B beneficiaries who change locations. In the past, USCIS has indicated that if a company files a new LCA before the H-1B beneficiary changes locations, an amended H-1B petition is not required. According to the new California Service Center policy, and experiences of companies in the field, companies must file an amended H-1B petition if an H-1B beneficiary changes locations even if the company already has an approved LCA in place that covers the new location.

Please contact us for more information if you have an H-1B beneficiary who has changed locations.
