AAO Approves H-1B on Appeal for Financial Analyst Position


A local furniture company hired Azhar & Azhar Law Firm to file a cap-subject H-1B application for their employee, a Financial Analyst. After the H-1B application was selected in the H-1B lottery, an RFE was sent and attorney Furqan Sunny Azhar responded to it. USCIS denied the application stating that the proffered position did not qualify as a specialty occupation. Attorney Furqan filed the I-290B appeal, where Attorney Furqan argued that the position is more unique and complex than other similar positions, and the knowledge required to perform the duties is associated with the attainment of a bachelor’s or higher degree in a specific specialty. The Administrative Appeals Office (AAO) agreed that the position did qualify as a specialty occupation and the beneficiary was qualified for the job. They sustained the appeal and USCIS approved the case.
