In the current episode, Prashanthi speaks about three of the latest USCIS updates from Jan 2023 and answers some of the essential queries for the H1-B cap season 2024 USCIS update for Jan 2024
  1.  USCIS further expands the timeline of benefits associated with increased time for responding to RFEs, NOIDS, Appeals, or other responses till March 23, 2023, earlier offered during the Covid-19 period.
  2. A new update on H4 and H4 EAD, which is a result of a settlement agreement In Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in Edakunni v. Mayorkas, The government, and plaintiffs have signed off on a settlement in which USCIS would agree to return to bundling the adjudication of I-539s and I-765s for H-4 and L-2 derivatives along with the underlying I-129 if somebody files these together. An important thing to note is that if somebody files these forms separately, USCIS will not bundle the adjudication.
  3.  The third important update in Jan 2023 is an effort to reduce visa wait times and processing backlogs at U.S. consulates; the U.S. Department of State has extended the authority of consular officers to waive in-person interviews for specific nonimmigrant categories through December 31, 2023.
