As discussed in our firm's Immigration Update dated February 1, 2011, the USCIS is currently beta testing the Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) program. The VIBE program accesses the Dun & Bradstreet database to obtain information about companies during the adjudication of both immigrant and nonimmigrant employment-based immigrant visa petitions. The USCIS has developed a VIBE Request for Evidence (RFE) template when the program can not verify the existence of a company based upon information or lack of information in the Dun & Bradstreet system. Our firm has begun to receive numerous VIBE RFEs for both small companies and also companies that are publicly traded and have revenues in access of $1 billion. These companies are being asked to update their information in Dun & Bradstreet in order to avoid future VIBE RFEs pertaining the existence of the company. Some of these companies have contacted Dun & Bradstreet and have verified that their information is accurate in the Dun & Bradstreet system. However, it is unclear if the USCIS is receiving complete and accurate information from Dun & Bradstreet and populating it into the VIBE system. So far, it appears that the beta testing for Form I-129 petitions is occurring at the USCIS Vermont Service Center and the beta testing for the Form I-140 petitions is occurring at the USCIS Texas Service Center.
