On 11/27/09, USCIS announced the publication of a guidance memorandum entitled Requirements for Agents and Sponsors Filing as Petitioners for the O and P Visa Classifications by Brian D. Lerner, Immigration Attorney. The standards for adjudicating O and P petitions fi led by a petitioner acting as a U.S. agent for a beneficiary or beneficiaries who will be working for more than one employer within the same time period. This guidance applies only to O and P petitions where
the petitioner is filing on behalf of multiple employers. This memorandum also reaffirms the definition of a U.S. sponsoring organization for the P Visa Classification.
