The Specialty Occupation RFE has become the new nightmare
facing H-1B beneficiaries, their sponsors, and their lawyers. They can be answered successfully with the
inclusion of an expert opinion letter, but this does not always work.
There are two reasons why:
1. The letter is
lacking in detail. USCIS requires a
very detailed letter with a breakdown of the daily duties and responsibilities
of the job and how specialized knowledge and skills are required to carry them
out. They need to understand this position
and its educational requirements within the broader context of the industry,
and they need to know all of the factors that went into setting the wage
level. A detailed expert opinion letter
can only accomplish this if you provide said expert with as many details as
possible. USCIS needs to know absolutely
2. The expert lacks
field experience. Every expert we
work with at CCI TheDegreePeople.com has extensive experience working in their
field of expertise. While some of our
experts are professors in that field, they also work directly in the
field. Teaching about the field is not
good enough for USCIS to consider someone an expert – they must WORK IN THE
FIELD beyond simply teaching it, and have extensive field experience and
respect within the field of specialization.
When the right expert writes a detailed letter, the Specialty Occupation
RFE is overturned and the visa is approved.
When the WRONG expert writes it, even if the letter is detailed, USCIS
denies the visa.
