OMB 1615-0009

USCIS uses the data collected on this form to determine eligibility for the requested nonimmigrant classification and/or requests to extend or change nonimmigrant status. An employer (or agent, where applicable) uses this form to petition USCIS for an alien to temporarily enter as an H-1B or H-1B1 nonimmigrant. An employer (or agent, where applicable) also uses this form to request an extension of stay of an H-1B or H-1B1 nonimmigrant worker or to change the status of an alien currently in the United States as a nonimmigrant to H-1B or H-1B1. The form serves the purpose of standardizing requests for H-1B and H-1B1 nonimmigrant workers and ensuring that basic information required for assessing eligibility is provided by the petitioner while requesting that beneficiaries be classified under the H-1B or H-1B1 nonimmigrant employment categories. It also assists USCIS in compiling information required by Congress annually to assess effectiveness and utilization of certain nonimmigrant classifications. Data collected on employers is provided to the media, researchers, and the general public on the H-1B Employer Data Hub to provide information on employers petitioning for H-1B workers.
