USCIS clarifies policy on location of H-3 training

Washington: USCIS on June 8 issued policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual clarifying when H-3 nonimmigrants may participate in training provided on the property of an academic or vocational institution.

Generally, H-3 trainees cannot participate in training provided primarily at or by an academic or vocational institution. The updated policy guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual clarifies that, if other H-3 requirements are met, training that happens to take place on the physical property of an academic or vocational institution may qualify if the training program is primarily created, offered, and sponsored by a government agency or other non academic or nonvocational entity.
