USCIS Temporarily Suspending Adjudication of Form I-129 H-2B Petitions

USCIS is temporarily suspending adjudication of Form I-129 H-2B petitions for temporary non-agricultural nonimmigrant workers as the government considers its response to a court order entered on March 4, 2015, in Perez v. Perez. Because of the March 4 decision, the Department of Labor is no longer accepting or processing requests for prevailing wage determinations or applications for temporary labor certifications as part of the H-2B visa program.

H-2B petitions require temporary labor certifications issued by the Department of Labor; because of the suspension of I-129 petitions, USCIS has temporarily suspended the adjudication of H-2B petitions. USCIS will continue to adjudicate H-2B petitions for non-agricultural temporary workers on Guam if the petitions include temporary labor certifications issued by the Guam Department of Labor.
