Need for Correction
On November 26, 2008, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) published a final rule at 73 FR 72275 improving the Department of Homeland Security's ability to detect and deter fraud and other abuses in the religious worker program. This rule included revisions to two public use forms:
- Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er) or Special Immigrant, and
- Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker.
USCIS inadvertently left out the form edition dates under 8 CFR 299.1 for Forms I-360 and I-129. This document corrects this error.Start List of Subjects
