According to H-1B Employer Data Hub, introduced by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the rate of denial of H-1B petitions is at a very high level compared to last year's figure. When H-1B data was introduced, there were fears that it will generate negative attention towards firms and individuals with H-1B visa holders, but it has now proven to be very vital perhaps more than anticipated by USCIS itself. The data shows that USCIS denies an H-1B visa at a rate that is obviously without legal authority. According to an analysis of USCIS data by a National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP), the rate of H-1B visa denial in the first quarter of 2019 is at an alarming 32% compared to the 5% seeing in the first quarter of 2015. The denial rate for new H-1B petitions quadrupled between FY 2015 and FY 2018 from 6% to 24% according to the analysis. This is a stark contrast compared to what was obtainable between 2010 and 2015 when the rate of denial of H-1B petitions did not go beyond 8%.
