In 2007, AILA released some disturbing news that warned immigration attorneys and foreign degree evaluation agency that all three-year degrees were at risk for denial for I-140 visa applications. As a result, Career Consulting International (CCI) has worked hard to uncover evidence and demonstrate that three-year bachelor degrees are the U.S. equivalency of a Bachelor Degree. For this reason, the agency…

Recently, CCI responded to another client who received an RFE through the Nebraska Service Center. The RFE indicated a strong potential for the denial of the client’s EB-3 Visa. The grounds indicated in the RFE were that the foreign degree in commerce was not the U.S. equivalency of a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration. The client wrote back to thank the agency for the excellent…

Two weeks ago, we received word from an attorney that another H1B RFE had been successfully answered, and the client’s case had been approved. The client had submitted her credentials for a nursing degree, as well as an evaluation from another agency, and USCIS found cause to issue an RFE – a request for information….

This week, a client notified us of a letter from USCIS approving her EB3 (I-140) Visa after having previously received a denial letter in response to an educational evaluation completed by a different credential evaluation agency.

This person had a particularly difficult situation, and was applying for an EB3 visa. Sometimes, people just give up hope after receiving…

Often, people applying for foreign credential evaluations for their Bachelor or Master Degrees don’t stop to realize that there is a big difference between A and O. Advanced and Ordinary Level secondary exams, that is. In fact, in many countries, Advanced Level exams are equal to an extra year of college education. Countries such as Norway, the United Kingdom,…

This week, we were very pleased to hear from another client who had received approval for his I-140 visa. It’s always wonderful to hear good news from people we have been able to help, and to offer help for someone else who has received an RFE or Denial. This person had received an RFE based…

People who immigrate to the United States arrive in this country with a wide variety of foreign degrees and other education. They may have completed high school, Bachelor’s, Master’s, or even Doctoral degree programs in their home countries. Determining to what level of education each of these foreign degrees is equivalent can be a complicated process….

Every month, Career Consulting International offers free foreign credential evaluations to the first 50 members of the US Armed Forces who apply. So far this year, though, the US military has yet to meet this monthly challenge. Many people seek careers in the military, hoping for opportunities to advance their careers and earn a good…
