USCIS Rescinds Prior NSC Guidance on H-1B Computer-Related Positions

USCIS issued a policy memorandum that supersedes and rescinds a memorandum providing guidance on H-1B computer-related positions issued by the Nebraska Service Center on December 22, 2000. The new memo offers clarity on USCIS's approach to determining whether the position of "Computer Programmer" is deemed a "specialty occupation" that would be eligible for an H-1B visa.
