USCIS Rescinds Guidance Regarding Deference to Prior Determinations of Eligibility in the Adjudications of Extensions of Nonimmigrant Status

Under updated policy guidance, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is instructing its officers to apply the same level of scrutiny to both initial petitions and extension requests for certain nonimmigrant visa categories. The guidance applies to nearly all nonimmigrant classifications filed using Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker.
