On January 30, 2008, USCIS announced that the CSC would serve as the centralized filing location for certain H-1B cap-exempt petitions. At that time, USCIS stated that cap-exempt employers requesting an extension should continue to file based on jurisdiction. In March 2009, however, the VSC announced that all cap-exempt employer H-1B cases, including extensions, should be filed at the CSC. Petitions filed with the VSC will be rejected, and the instructions to Form I-129 have been amended to reflect this requirement. Cap-exempt petitioners are those who are exempt from the numerical limitations set forth in 8 C.F.R. § 214.2(h)(8)(A).
