If you or your employee or client has an Indian three-year bachelors degree, you are coming into this H1B season with an RFE target on the petition. CIS will not accept that Indian three-year bachelors degree as the equivalent of a US four-year bachelors degree. Yes, US graduate programs do. Yes, international trade agreements do….

It seems like every year CIS is coming out with a new difficult RFE to throw H1B beneficiaries and their employers and attorneys a curve ball. This year, we were all caught off guard by the Level 1 Wages RFE that targets computer programmers. As with all other years, this RFE is an opportunity to…

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…

There are many situations in which H1B candidates will file with education from an unaccredited institution. Plenty of academically competitive institutions of education that are held in high regard by the professional fields their students are trained in, that provide students with high quality education that are simply not government accredited.  Graduates of programs from…

Have you ever heard of a degree in Computer Systems Analysis? This is the most common H1B qualified job with little, if any, exact matching education.

One of the most common EB2 education RFEs arrives when a candidate holds a degree that doesn’t call itself a degree. In fact Chartered Accountancy is the degree that receives the most RFEs for the EB2 classification. Time and again, EB2 candidates who have earned an Indian Chartered Accountancy certificate receive an RFE even though…

RFEs, particularly RFEs regarding education when it comes to the H-1B visa, can be extremely complicated and difficult to answer. One…

The H-1B visa is a dual-purpose visa that allows foreign nationals to come work highly skilled jobs in the United States for long periods of time. This visa is highly desirable and laden with sneaky education traps that can tank your case, or your employee or client’s case in a hurry. H-1B eligibility requirements state…

We’re deep in RFE season, which means at least one in four of every H-1B beneficiary selected in the lottery has likely received one.

In fact, your eligibility, or your employee or…
