VIBE RFE for H-1B Visa

USCIS has been issuing “VIBE” RFE’s (Request for Evidence). A VIBE RFE is issued when the USCIS officer cannot verify the company information provided on the I-129 H1B Visa petition.

If the information provided on the I-129 petition does not match the information provided in the VIBE system, the USCIS officer will issue an RFE asking the employer to submit documents as evidence.

Here is the USCIS page on Vibe. And here.

What is Vibe:

“VIBE” stands for the Validation Instrument for Business Enterprise. This is a resource provided by Dun & Bradstreet, a private company.
