Vermont Service Center Transfers Thousands of Cases to the Texas and California Service Centers

August 16, 2006

USCIS published a public notice on July 26, 2006 stating that due to an unusually high workload at the Vermont Service Center, they have recently transferred 5,000 petitions for nonimmigrant workers (I-129) to the Texas Service Center and 22,000 I-130 immigrant petitions to the California Service Center for adjudication. In practice, it appears that some I-360 petitions have also been transferred from Vermont to the California Service Center, though this was not announced.
