Labor Unions Can Directly Send Negative O Visa Consultations

USCIS announced that effective immediately, it shall accept copies of negative consultation letters directly from labor unions relating to O non-immigrant visa petition submissions. In general, USCIS requires consultation letters from a U.S. peer group, labor organization, or management organization for O petitions. Typically, the petitioner submits the necessary O visa consultation with the petition. While that requirement remains unchanged, labor unions should now send copies(only) of negative O non-immigrant consultation letters  to  UnionConsultationMailbox@uscis.dhs.gov. To help USCIS correctly match the letters with the appropriate petition, labor unions should include the last five digits of each beneficiary’s passport number in the consultation letters.
