Direct Filing Addresses for Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker

Regular Processing

Form I-129 Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, is filed at the California Service Center (CSC), the Vermont Service Center (VSC), the Nebraska Service Center (NSC), or the Texas Service Center (TSC), depending on which nonimmigrant classification and action the petitioner is requesting and where the petitioner is located.

For many classifications, the U.S. state or territory where your company or organization’s primary office is located will determine where you should send your Form I-129 package. For example, if your company’s primary office is in New York, file Form I-129 with the VSC regardless of the beneficiary’s worksite. If your company’s primary office is in California, file Form I-129 with the CSC regardless of the beneficiary’s worksite.

Form I-129 petitions for certain nonimmigrant classifications and requested actions are filed at one service center, regardless of where the company or organization’s primary office is located. Currently, only certain H-1B and H-1B1 petitions are filed at the NSC.

Please refer to the “I-129 Nonimmigrant Classification Filing Locations” dropdown tabs below for information regarding your specific requested nonimmigrant classification and requested action.

Filing for Temporary Employment or Training in More Than One Location

When the temporary employment or training will be in different locations within the same U.S. state or territory, or in different U.S. states or territories, the state where your company or organization’s primary office is located will still be used to determine where you should file your Form I-129 package, regardless of the beneficiary’s work location(s). For example, if the beneficiary will work or receive training in two or more different locations in the state of Arizona, and your company’s primary office is in New York, file Form I-129 with the VSC. If the beneficiary will work or receive training in a location in Arizona and in another location in Florida, and your company’s primary office is in New York, file Form I-129 with the VSC.

Listing Your Organization’s Primary Address

Your company or organization’s primary office should be listed in Part 1, Question 3.

Providing Additional Information

In addition to Part 5, Question 3, you may also use Part 9 of Form I-129 to list additional worksite locations if you need extra space.

Premium Processing

If you are requesting premium processing services for a Form I-129, you must also file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Services. Before you file the Form I-129/I-907 package, check uscis.gov to ensure that the requested classification is eligible for premium processing.

ALERT: If you received a transfer notice for your Form I-129 petition, and you are requesting premium processing service, you must submit your premium processing request to the service center now handling your petition. You should also include a copy of the transfer notice with your premium processing request to avoid possible delays associated with the receipt of your premium processing request. If your petition was transferred and you send your premium processing request to the wrong center, USCIS will forward it to the petition’s current location. However, the premium processing clock will not start until the premium processing request has been received at the correct center. Read more here for additional requirements and filing addresses for H-1B related I-129 petitions: USCIS Resumes Premium Processing for H-1B Petitions Filed on or Before Dec. 21, 2018.
