A handful of H-1B visa applications for FY 2010 by consulting companies received RFEs on H-1B petitions sent.
Yet still, many are waiting to hear from the USCIS about their application status after their employers had responded to the RFE requests from USCIS.
New RFE Requirements
Murthy.com posted a report on the relaxed documents requirements on RFE requests received on H-1B visa 2010 applications submitted by consulting companies to Vermont Service Centers.
- The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will not accept any statement regarding the duties from the petitioning consulting company alone.
- The VSC confirmed that a letter from the end client is acceptable as proof of the specific assignment.
- According to the VSC, it no long requests these contracts in its RFEs.
These new requirements should make responding to RFE a bit easy, since consulting companies are not required to submit the actual contract they have with their clients, which may contain confidential information.
