Immigration job advertisements should keep in mind the changes that take place with the law that have to do with foreigners entering U.S. Indeed, since much rests on the law, understanding the way it works is key to setting the right expectations.
Delay and Denials with RFE
Evidence challenges from the USCIS increased by as much as 45 percent during 2017. What this means is that now it is even more important than before to make sure that one has completed their applications completely and carefully, so that there are no mistakes. This is true for individuals hoping to come to the U.S. but also for companies who are planning on creating immigration advertising to bring employees in.
Amend Petitions and End of Deference
The USCIS explained that it doesn’t offer deference to those individuals waiting for a status approval. This is quite a huge policy modification, which is why keeping one’s status, as well as ensuring that one’s records of employment history is strong and detailed is tremendously important. In addition, one should also make sure to keep a strong documentation of the offered job for the petitions for extension and amendment. This is important for both individuals and companies hoping to place immigration advertising to attract new employees.
Since the USCIS is able to suspend H-1B premium processing, one should make sure to be prepared for it. The way they can do so is by planning it so that they leave anywhere between 4-5 months for the H-1B processings to happen.
The process for applicants coming into the U.S. through a job has changed, as these individuals have to go to an interview with their local USCIS office before being able to get a green card. The good news is that while the interview is an extra step that has to be taken, it doesn’t lead to significant delays in the process of applying. In addition, they do not result in hugely unexpected decisions.
Things One Can Do
First off, one should be sure to plan ahead, as they should have plenty of time to get all the documents they need, so that one can obtain the permission to keep on working and living in the U.S. Moreover, it could be a good idea to file more than one petition. For instance,one can apply for lengthening of the visa, while also applying for citizenship, if that’s what they wish to do. Finally, having a lawyer to help out in the application process, as well as with offering advice can make a huge difference
