What is RFE?

Occasionally, USCIS requires the applicants (company or individual) to provide additional information and supplement materials before approving their H1B visa — This is what is known as the RFE (Request for Evidence). In the 2019 fiscal year, the GOH1B team predicts that the probability of receiving an RFE for your H1B application is 51%.

  • The position offered typically does not require a bachelor’s degree
  • Lack of professionalism in the description of job duties
