Employers accustomed to relying on a uniform three-year admission policy for blanket L workers may be frustrated with the recent policy positions taken by the U.S. Department of State (DOS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The endorsement policy for Form I-129S was recently clarified by DOS to define the time during which a worker is authorized for blanket L classification. However, there is still not a clear-cut rule, and several issues relating to I-129S endorsement policies remain unresolved. This seminar focuses on the inter-agency relationships and positions, I-129S endorsement date discrepancies, and preparing your client for the seemingly random periods of admission granted upon entry by CBP.

Featured Topics

  • Current DOS Policy for Obtaining Form I-129S Renewals
  • Current DOS/CBP Policy Regarding Form I-129S Endorsement Dates
  • Challenges Under Current Form I-129S Endorsement Policies
  • L-1 Blanket Petitions and Consular Processing Tips
  • Latest Trends in L-1B Adjudications at U.S. Consulates
