DHS Removes Rules That Proposed Key Changes To H-1B Visa Program

The Department of Homeland Security has issued a final rule, removing from the Code of Federal Regulations, an October 2020 interim final rule that proposed key changes to the H-1B program including revising the definition of and standards for a “specialty occupation”.

The October 2020 interim final rule was vacated by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in December 2020.

With this new final rule, the regulatory text published in October 2020 has been removed, and the regulatory text as it appeared prior, has been restored.
