CIS Service Centers to Specialize in Certain Applications

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This may be old, but hey it was new info for me, and might explain some future chaos. :huh:

Excerpt:

Since the inception of the INS “remote” service centers in the 1980s, each service center has been responsible for adjudicating immigration petitions and applications according to the geographical area of the country where the petitioner or the applicant was located.

Over time, certain exceptions to the geographical rule developed. Designated employers could submit all of their petitions at a particular service center. TN petitions, petitions for certain athletes and customer harvesters could only be filed with the Nebraska Service Center. E-1 and E-2 petitions had to be submitted to either the California or the Texas Service Center.

On March 24, the CIS announced that it was taking the first step in scrapping this geographical system and replacing it with a new system which the agency has dubbed “bi-specialization”.

Ah, couldn't get to it fast enough to edit it. :)

Here is the USCIS fact sheet that alludes to this. I reckon this is broadly known already, but for all the new wanderers-on to this site it may be informative.

Two Service Centers designated to receive all I-129s and I-140s

Yeah, I sure dug around for that one a while. It's where someone pays $1400 or somesuch to get all of the approval paperwork done in around 14 days. If it is not done in that time, you get your money back and you still get premium processing done.

As far as I can tell, it's for business-implicated applications only. Alas, not for I-129F... Considering what loss can amount in airfares in worst case scenarios, for some folks the $1400 would have been a bargain if it was broadly available.

If the same personnel resources are processing these as well as ours, the queue for these would likely impact turnaround times for Approvals.
