On February 20, 2011, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) added an additional export compliance attestation that will affect all H-1B petitions. This attestation requires employers to confirm that they have reviewed the U.S. export control regulations and have determined whether a license is required to release controlled technology or technical data to the sponsored worker. The U.S. export control regulations are not new. USCIS is now requiring that all hiring institutions review the regulations as they pertain to an international employee’s position and sign a compliance certification (attestation) as part of the H-1B visa process.
Please, submit the form below as part of your H-1B request packet:
