U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is offering assistance with reference to the announcement made by U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to extend Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) - only Transitional Worker (CW-1) program for a five year period, i.e. till 31 December 2019.

The extension will permit CNMI businesses to continue the activity of recruiting CW-1 workers from overseas workers to meet the present and future requirements on US immigration.  

USCIS offered status and grant extensions of new CW-1 status till 31 December 2014. If an eligible petition was not legally judged and if the petitioner requests for a complete year, then USCIS will start issuing CW-1 status in time slots of up to one year. The application fees or process for the CW program remains same. There are no changes in the application form to be filed and time frames for petition. USCIS advises employers to file the forms as early as possible in order to avoid any sort of gaps in employment authorization.

The dependents of CW-1 workers including partners and children under the age of 18 can obtain CW-2 derivative status for the same period as of primary CW-1 petitioner.
