USCIS Advises Employers to Wait to File For New H-1B Exemption

The USCIS Office of Congressional Relations is preparing a notice that would provide information about the new H-1B exemption for individuals with master’s or other higher degrees from U.S. institutions. While this exemption does not go into effect until March 9, 2005, USCIS has advised employers not to file H-1B petitions to employ individuals under this exemption until a USCIS guidance has been published in the Federal Register. USCIS will reject any such application filed before the guidance is published.
