Workload Transfer of Form I-129s

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services transferred I-129 workload from California to Nebraska Service Center

On October 30, 2018, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) transferred some of its I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, workload from its California Service Center to its Nebraska Service Center.

This is not an uncommon policy of USCIS. The agency does so to better balance the workload and to promote timely processing. In light of the suspension of premium processing, USCIS has experienced a need to redistribute certain petitions to improve adjudication efficiency.

Transfers of petitions from one service center to another is not known to cause delays in adjudication and does not change the case receipt number.
