Nebraska Service Center To Accept Certain H1B1 And H1B Petitions

The Nebraska Service Center will soon begin accepting certain Form I-129 H1B petitions and H-1B1 petitions on behalf of Chileans and Singaporeans. Currently, all H-1B1 petitions on behalf of Chileans and Singaporeans are filed at the Vermont Service Center, and all H1B petitions are filed at the Vermont Service Center or California Service Center depending on the work location.

Starting July 1, 2016, Nebraska Service Center will begin accepting H-1B1 and H-1B petitions that request

  • continuation of previously approved employment, without change, and with the same employer; and
