USCIS Rejecting Form I-129 Petitions That Lack Required Name and Address

USCIS Rejecting Form I-129 Petitions That Lack Required Name and Address

I-129 Rejection Criteria

USCIS reminds that starting August 5, 2019 petitions that do not include the petitioner’s or applicant’s name and primary U.S. office address in Part 1 of the form will be rejected. USCIS will subject all requests for nonimmigrant classifications filed on Form I-129 to this rejection criteria, including the time-sensitive H-2A visa classification for temporary agricultural workers.

USCIS recognizes that in certain circumstances, the person signing Part 8 of Form I-129 may be an employee of the petitioning entity and have the same address as that of the petitioner named in Part 1 of the form. In such a case, USCIS would not reject the Form I-129 because of the duplicate addresses.
