This year, we all met the Level 1 Wages RFE that targeted H1B computer programmers working at Level 1 Wages.  We’re still answering these RFEs, and it’s almost time to file again. First, let’s look at the Level 1 Wages RFE: Until this year, CIS has left computer programmers at Level 1 Wages alone when…

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…

An important step in successfully answering any RFE is to find out who dropped the ball. Sometimes, the attorney filed the petition wrong. Sometimes, the candidate simply doesn’t have the credentials to meet H1B requirements. Sometimes, the candidate does have the qualifications but the credential evaluation to prove it was either not included or written…

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…

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…

Every year is different when it comes to the H1B visa.  This competitive visa status allows highly skilled foreign nationals to come to the United States for three years with the option to extend, and work jobs that require a US bachelor’s degree or higher.  STEM industries in the US depend on the H1B visa…

Did you or your employee or client receive an education RFE for their H1B visa petition? Did you submit a credential evaluation with the initial petition and still receive an RFE? The problem may be that you had the right evaluation for the wrong visa. College and graduate admissions evaluations, for example, are an entirely…

It’s RFE season and the prevalence of the dreaded Nightmare RFE is on the rise right along with the rate of RFE responses. We’re not sure what triggers this RFE, and we’re not even sure CIS has the right to make these requests, but they keep on coming. The Nightmare RFE is virtually impossible to…

RFE season is here for cap-subject H1B candidates! The past ten years has seen a massive spike in RFEs with around one quarter of all petitions receiving on, so don’t be surprised if one arrives. An RFE is an opportunity to strengthen you case, or your employee or client’s case. At TheDegreePeople, we work with…

It’s H1B RFE season and there’s a one in four chance that you or your employee or client received one. RFEs have become increasingly common over the past several years, and CIS approval trends regarding H1B education have changed. RFEs have become not only more common, but also more complex and confusing. For example, the…
