Service Center Jurisdiction
Petitions should be sent to either the California Service Center or Vermont Service Center. If the artist is working/performing at a single address, file with the service center with jurisdiction over that address.
If the artist is working/performing at more than one address (no matter how close they are to one another!!), file with the service center with jurisdiction over the petitioner’s address. For example, if the artist will work at two addresses in Phoenix, Arizona, and the petitioner is located in New York, the petition should be filed with the Vermont Service Center. Petitions filed to the incorrect address will be rejected and returned to the petitioner. Please see our USCIS Service Center Tips and Contact Information for complete information about the locations for filing petitions.
The envelope must be clearly marked “Regular Processing” or “Premium Processing.”
