VIBE D&B Registration to Minimize USCIS RFEs


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) employs the Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) to verify the legitimacy and operational status of U.S. companies and multinational corporations. This program, powered by independent information provider Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), aims to streamline the verification process and reduce legal challenges such as Requests for Evidence (RFEs) that often focus on corporate relationships, including parent and subsidiary affiliations with companies abroad.

Creating a D&B profile could be particularly beneficial for startups lacking extensive historical business records. By registering with D&B, businesses can ensure their corporate data is accurately reflected in the VIBE program, potentially reducing the likelihood of RFEs related to the existence and viability of the business.

VIBE is routinely referenced in legal challenges from USCIS.
