As noted in
e-mail alert, late yesterday USCIS
announced that the export certification requirement in the new Form I-129 (Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker) will be suspended for 60 days to allow employers additional time to develop the
procedures necessary for compliance. Although petitioners must use the new Form
I-129 effective today, petitioners need not complete Part 6 of Form I-129 until
February 20, 2011.
