In a temporary accommodation made for FY-09 cap-subject H-1B petitions, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced on April 4, 2008 that it will not reject an H-1B petition that is subject to the fiscal year 2009 cap solely on the grounds that it was received at the wrong service center (e.g., the petition may have been inadvertently mailed to the California Service Center instead of the Vermont Service Center or vice versa). It is important to note this accommodation does not apply if the petitions were sent to the Texas or Nebraska Service Centers.
