The I-140 Final Rule updates, improves, and clarifies DHS regulations consistent with policy guidance. The I-140 Final Rule provides that a nonimmigrant visa holder (H, E, L, O, TN) is not considered out of nonimmigrant status solely on the basis that the employment on which the classification was based has ceased, for up to 60 consecutive days or until the end of the authorized validity period, whichever is shorter.
