New Regulations for H-1B1s, E-3s, EB-1s and CW-1s
USCIS has published ﬁnal rules in the Federal Register. These ﬁnal rules will have the following eﬀects:
- For H-1B1 (Chile and Singapore) and CW-1 (CNMI-Only Nonimmigrant Transitional Worker), it will extend work authorization incident to status with the same employer if the employer has ﬁled a timely extension of the H-1B1s stay.
- Harmonizes E-3, H-1B1 and CW-1 with similarly situated nonimmigrant classiﬁcations.
- For EB-1 Outstanding Professors and Researchers, it expands the list of initial evidence to include other forms of evidence listed in 8 CFR 204.5(i)(3)(i).
