The H-1B Program: Tips for Employers and Employees During Unannounced Site Visits


The USCIS Office of Fraud Detection and National Security has started an assessment of the H-1B program where they have immigration officers go to the H-1B employers and employees and make unannounced site visits. The unannounced site visits will occur at the place of business that is listed on the H-1B petition, so they will go to the employee’s work site. Essentially, what they are doing is making sure that there is no fraud in the H-1B program and that the employee is actually working at the employer’s place of business. They have other verification methods that include, but are not limited to: review of the public records and information; contact via written correspondence, the Internet, fax, e-mail or telephone.
