At TheDegreePeople, we see difficult RFEs come across our desks every year. This year, CIS rolled out a new RFE, the Level 1 Wages RFE, that has everyone panicking. No one saw it coming, and it’s arrived in unprecedented numbers. First, it’s important to understand how the Level 1 Wages RFE is justified. CIS cites…

At TheDegreePeople, we work with difficult RFE cases every year. This year is no different, except alongside three-year degree RFEs and the Nightmare RFE, we are now seeing the dreaded Level 1 Wages RFE. This RFE is difficult because no one saw it coming and its commonality is unprecedented. Computer programmers petitioning for H1B status…

The Level 1 Wages RFE is the Nightmare RFE of this year. In this RFE, CIS targets computer programmers petitioning for H1B status with jobs set at Level 1 Wages. The justification for this RFE is that entry level computer programmers are sometimes hired with only an Associates degree, which doesn’t meet CIS requirements for…

While the Level 1 Wages RFE has been this year’s hot new horrible H1B RFE, all of the classic RFEs we see year after year are still out there. Candidates who received an RFE for Level 1 Wages and answered it perfectly are now getting hit with another round of RFEs.  In fact, this year…

This RFE has everyone panicked and stumped.  This year, CIS specifically targeted computer programmers working for Level 1 Wages.  They justify this decision by citing a passage from the Occupational Outlook Handbook stating some employers hire computer programmers with an Associates degree as the prerequisite.  This does not meet H1B specialization requirements that state a…

Here’s how: get help!  This is the toughest RFE we’ve seen since the Nightmare and it’s got everyone panicked. This year, CIS targeted computer programmers across the country petitioning for H1B visa status with the Level 1 Wages RFE.  In this RFE, CIS states that the job of computer programmers at Level 1 Wages is…

Until this year, the scariest RFE out there was The Nightmare RFE, also known as the Kitchen Sink because there’s literally everything in it.  This year, CIS rolled out an even more difficult RFE: the Level 1 Wages RFE, targeting computer programmers.  What’s scary about this RFE is the sheer volume of it, how nobody…

The first step to getting the Level 1 Wage RFE overturned is to ask for help. This is a difficult RFE that caught us all offguard, but our experts at TheDegreePeople.com have been able to get them overturned with a 90% success rate. CIS started coming down hard on computer programmers petitioning for H1B visa…

This year, CIS rolled out a new RFE that may be even more terrifying than the notorious Nightmare RFE.  Computer programmers working at Level 1 Wage across the country are receiving RFEs claiming that their job does not meet minimum H1B education requirements.  The rationale behind this is that the Occupational Outlook Handbook states some…

The short answer: get help!  This is the most difficult RFE we’ve seen in many years, and definitely the most widespread.  The sheer volume of Level 1 Wage RFEs pouring in from CIS onto H1B candidates is insanity.  It is more important than ever that we take a stand and answer these RFEs for the…
