USCIS Releases L-1B Statistics

In response to a FOIA request, USCIS released statistics for FY2012 and FY2013 on the number of L-1B nonimmigrant petitions received, approved, and denied, as well the number of L-1B petitions for which an RFE was issued. These new statistics, when compared with USCIS statistics and a National Foundation for American Policy report, both released in 2012, reveal that the L-1B denial rate increased from 27% in FY2011 to 30% in FY2012 and 34% in FY2013.
