U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a new guidance
memorandum clarifying the standards for adjudicating O and P visa petitions
filed by the petitioner acting as a U.S. agent for a beneficiary or beneficiaries
who will be working for more than one employer within the same time period.
This guidance applies only to O and P visa petitions where the petitioner is
filing on behalf of multiple employers. This memorandum also reaffirms the
definition of a U.S. sponsoring organization for the P visa classification.
Both the O and P visa regulations provide that if the beneficiary will work
concurrently for more than one employer within the same time period, each employer
must file a separate petition with the Service Center that has jurisdiction
over the area where the alien will perform services, unless a U.S. agent files
the O or P visa petition.
