Guidance on PT/OT Masters denied cases

The USCIS has just released a Guidance Memorandum for those Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists who had their H-1B petitions denied this spring before the issuance of the Velarde Guidance Memorandum. Those cases that were denied solely because ether H-1B worker did not have a Masters degrees should send an email to the Service Center that issued the denial. Special email addresses have been created to handle these cases:

California Service Center:
csc-ncsc-followup@dhs.gov

Vermont Service Center:
vsc.ncscfollowup@dhs.gov

The email should explain how the particular case meets the standards set forth in the Velarde Guidance Memorandum.
