Sometimes, the USCIS recognizes that a client’s foreign degree is the U.S.equivalency of a Bachelor Degree, but disagrees that the client’s educational experience meets labor certificate requirements. In these cases, a functional equivalency must be shown between the labor certificate and the degree obtained.
In this particular case, a client approached Career Consulting Internationalafter receiving an RFE from the USCIS. He held a Bachelor Degree in Engineering, but his immigration visa requirements required a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science.
We were able to supply extensive research materials and evidence to issue an expert opinion demonstrating how the two degrees were in fact functionally equivalent. With the educational evaluation and the expert opinion, we were able to successfully answer the RFE.
The client received approval for his visa.
