CIS Adopts "Affected Parties" Decision in Matter of V-S-G- Inc.
USCIS clarified that beneficiaries of valid employment-based immigrant visa petitions who are eligible to change jobs or employers ("port") and who have properly requested to do so under INA § 204(j), are "affected parties" under DHS regulations for purposes of revocation proceedings of their visa petitions and must be afforded an opportunity to participate in those proceedings. Other kinds of visa petition beneficiaries, and the subsequent employers of beneficiaries who have ported or sought to port, are not affected parties under DHS regulations and may not participate in visa revocation proceedings. Matter of V-S-G- Inc., Adopted Decision 2017-06 (AAO Nov. 11, 2017).
