The immigration landscape has become challenging since the BAHA proclamation in 2017. Denials and RFEs are steadily rising, causing distress to beneficiaries, and revenue loss to Petitioners and Attorneys, with workload increase. Is there a better way to improve visa outcomes for everyone? After all, everybody is working towards a common goal – visa approvals. Can all stakeholders run this obstacle race together and hit the finishing line together too? Executing immigration through a collaborative approach and top-notch immigration services is now possible.
Each stakeholder has a unique set of challenges that impede them from navigating the immigration process with ease. Through this article, we will explore how Imagility with its tech-driven immigration services makes every stage of the immigration process easier.
The beneficiary follows instructions, sends all details and related documents that the internal immigration team or attorneys demand through email. After this, the beneficiary is totally in the dark about how the petition is shaping up. Then there will be an occasional mail asking for more documents or frantic calls from Attorneys when the deadline is closer. This is mostly the case with H-1B petitions with soaring demand and tight deadlines. Next could be incomprehensible RFEs or, even worse, a denial. The beneficiary has no idea about what went wrong and how the same mistakes can be avoided next time by availing of top-class immigration services. What beneficiaries struggle with:
- Navigating the complex immigration process
- No visibility into petition building
- Consolidating Documents for submission
- Finding the right sponsors
