    The increased monitoring and review of H1-B petitions by the Department of Homeland Security means an increase in site visits by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). No longer focused on certain types of employers or nonimmigrant visas, site visits can now affect any employer filing H-1 or L-1 visa petitions. This article, compiled by members of the Squire Sanders Immigration Practice Group, covers the basics of USCIS site visits including who should be prepared for them, what happens during a visit and what should be done before and during such a visit.
