The Department of State (“DOS”) issued a cable, which updates a provision of the Foreign Affairs Manual that deals with personal/domestic employees of U.S. citizens on temporary assignment in the United States. The cable advises that the length of stay for a qualified employee is increased from 4 to 6 years.

To qualify as a U.S. employer, a person must be subject to frequent international transfers, lasting two years or more as a condition of the position, and be returning to the United States for a stay of no more than six years. This visa is used most often by personal/domestic employees of U.S. government personnel subject to foreign assignments, or U.S. employees of global corporations.
