Overview of This Information Collection (1) Type of Information Collection: Revision of a Currently Approved Collection. (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Petition for a CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker. (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the DHS sponsoring the collection: Form I– 129CW; USCIS. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals or households; Business or other for-profit. USCIS uses the data collected on this form to determine eligibility for the requested immigration benefits. An employer uses this form to petition USCIS for an alien to temporarily enter as a nonimmigrant into the CNMI to perform services or labor as a CNMIOnly Transitional Worker (CW–1). An employer also uses this form to request an extension of stay or change of status on behalf of the alien worker. The form serves the purpose of standardizing requests for these benefits, and ensuring that the basic information required to determine eligibility, is provided by the petitioners. USCIS collects biometrics from aliens present in the CNMI at the time of requesting initial grant of CW–1 status. The information is used to verify the alien’s identity, background information and ultimately adjudicate their request for CW–1 status. The CW–1 classification is unique in that Form I–129CW is a petition for the CW–1 classification as well as a ‘‘grant of status.’’ A ‘‘grant of status’’ allows beneficiaries lawfully present in the CNMI to change status directly from their CNMI classification or DHS-issued parole to the CW–1 classification.
