DHS/USCIS RIN: 1615-AB95 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Immigration Benefits Business Transformation: Nonimmigrants; Student and Exchange Visitor Program 
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is amending its nonimmigrant regulations to enable U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to migrate from a paper-file based, nonintegrated systems environment to an electronic, customer-focused, centralized case management environment for benefit processing. This rulemaking, the second in a series of business transformation rules, primarily focuses on 8 CFR part 214, reorganizes and streamlines general information relating to nonimmigrant classifications, and relocates other information relating to specific individual nonimmigrant classifications to a separate subpart for each major nonimmigrant classification. DHS is making these amendments because part 214 contains more than 20 nonimmigrant classifications and it has become very large and complex to navigate. This regulation will provide the public with simpler, better organized regulatory requirements for each nonimmigrant classification and facilitate future revisions. DHS is also finalizing four interim final rules affecting the H-1B (RIN 1615-AB68), H-1C (RIN 1615-AA35), K (RIN 1615-AA56), and V (RIN 1615-AA53) nonimmigrant classes.
