LATEST NEWS ALERT: NEW Filing Location for O and P Petitions - (10/04/23)
As of October 1, 2023, Form I-129 petitions should be filed at the Texas Service Center for O and P classification approval. Formerly, petitioners sent materials to California or Vermont depending on the location of the primary petitioner. USCIS very quietly updated this news on its website, providing 2 months for petitioners to adjust to the change.
Any petitions postmarked on or after December 1, 2023 will be rejected as improperly filed if mailed to the incorrect location.
For more details see USCIS's webpage on direct filing addresses for Form I-129. There are slight variations on the mailing address and the Zip+4 depending on the method of delivery as well as whether a petition is filed regularly or with Premium Processing Service requested. Our Service Center tips document has been updated accordingly.
