Receiving all H–2A petitions at the designated California Service Center PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63621 will enable U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to reduce overall petition processing times and better monitor the adjudication of H–2A petitions. DATES: This Notice is effective December 10, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hiroko Witherow, Service Center Operations, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Department of Homeland Security, 111 Massachusetts Avenue, NW., Suite 3000, Washington, DC 20529, telephone (202) 272–8410. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The H–2A nonimmigrant classification applies to alien workers coming to the United States temporarily to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature. Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) sec. 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a), 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a); see 8 CFR 214.1(a)(2) (H–2A classification designation). As part of the process to obtain H–2A nonimmigrant status, a U.S. employer must file Form I–129, ‘‘Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker,’’ on the workers’’ behalf. On October 17, 2007, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it was centralizing the processing of Forms I– 129 filed under the H–2A nonimmigrant classification (hereinafter ‘‘H–2A petitions’’) to its California Service Center (CSC). See http://www.uscis.gov/ files/pressrelease/ H2AUpdate17Oct07.pdf. USCIS also issued Form I–129 Supplemental Filing Instructions for filing H–2A petitions at the CSC. The October 17 announcement encouraged employers to begin filing H– 2A petitions at the CSC address. Previously, employers were required to file H–2A petitions either with USCIS’ California Service Center (CSC) or Vermont Service Center (VSC), depending on the location of the temporary employment. See Form I–129 Instructions (Rev. 07/30/07), at pages 13 through 16. The change in filing location of H–2A petitions to the CSC was prompted by USCIS’ establishment of a special unit at the California Service Center dedicated to process all H–2A petitions. USCIS believes that receiving all H–2A petitions at the designated CSC address will help speed the feereceipt, data-entry, and adjudication processes. In so doing, USCIS will be able to reduce overall petition processing times and better monitor the adjudication of H–2A petitions. USCIS has been forwarding H–2A petitions to the CSC for processing if a E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1
