Firstly, Form I-129 petitioners will now be able to file Form I-129 petitions at the service center in the area where the petitioning company's or organization's primary office is located. Under the previous rules, petitioners were required to file the Form I-129 based on the Form I-129 petition beneficiary's temporarily employment or training location.

Secondly, petitioners that are located in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, or Texas will file their Form I-129 at the California Service Center.

The USCIS will begin rejecting Form I-129s filed at the wrong service center under the new filing rules on November 11, 2017.
