Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) is a Web-based adjudication tool used by USCIS to validate basic information about companies or organizations petitioning to employ certain alien workers. When a company or business is not found on VIBE, it may result in an Request for Evidence (RFE)
Dun & Bradstreet (D&B), launched the process on Dec. 9, 2011, enabling eligible petitioners to update their company or organization information. Please note that USCIS does not expect or require petitioners to contact D&B. However, certain USCIS customers filing employment-based petitions that qualify for VIBE may, at no cost, use the iUpdate link to contact D&B to create, update and view basic elements of their organization’s D&B record, without being subjected to direct marketing from D&B. An FAQ on iUpdate is available online.
The new process is available for U.S.-based, privately held companies only.
