CW-1: CNMI-Only Transitional Worker

The CNMI-Only Transitional Worker visa is a way for employers to hire foreign nonimmigrant workers who are not eligible for other nonimmigrant work visas.

On August 22, 2017, the CW-1 visa for workers in the Commonwealth of the Northern Marina Islands (CNMI) was revised with the following changes:

  • Construction and extraction jobs under the Department of Labor Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system classified as 47-000 are not eligible for this visa.
  • Petitioners now pay an education fee of $200 per worker (increased from $150).
  • Existing CW-1 workers must show that they worked for the same employer since October 1, 2015 in order to be approved for a visa renewal. This applies to all pending petitions as of August 22, 2017.
